To systematically present good practices information provided by participating states at the Eighth Summit, as well as institutional offers of assistance for preventing and combating corruption, gathered from Joint Summit Working Group (JSWG) organizations, including the OAS.
The Database of Good Practices and Regional Capacities is put together drawing on the register of progress made by states and JSWG institutions, including the OAS, in fulfilling the Lima Commitment, using the aforementioned Mechanism's online platform.
Because the register documents progress for each Lima Commitment mandate, the categories covered by the Database of Good Practices and Regional Capacities reflect the areas under which those mandates are handled, namely:
PLATFORM’S TENTATIVE TIMETABLE
A “good practice” is defined as one that comes in response to a situation that needs changing, whether innovative (innovation understood as not only involving a new action but can be a different and creative way of carrying out, or reorganizing, traditional practices). These are activities to bring about a positive impact or qualitative leap forward in a country, and have to do with fulfillment of one of the paragraphs of the Lima Commitment.
COOPERATION OFFERS THROUGH THE MECHANISM
The information consolidated in the data base of regional best practices and capacities will allow for the promotion of forums for cooperation among states and the JSWG institutions in preventing and combating corruption.
