In September 2016, Transparency International released joint CSO policy recommendations ahead of the Brussels Conference on Afghanistan (October 2016), in partnership with Integrity Watch Afghanistan, TI-UK, Global Witness and Open Contracting Partnership. These recommendations are the result of a wide range of consultations beginning in 2015 which included meetings with H.E. President Ghani and his ministers, donors, civil society and leading organisations to assess the National Integrity System of Afghanistan. These recommendations aim to inform the Afghan Government and international community about their commitments regarding how to move the governance agenda forward at the Brussels Conference. They reflect not just the input of national and international experts, but also the concerns and experience of a wide section of Afghan civil society.
