Defencs Force Index 2015 world map and country scores

NZ and UK are the only defence forces to score A’s

The New Zealand Defence Force continues to be one of only two countries to be awarded an ‘A’ for transparency.  It also has the highest score.

Scoring an A across every risk area assessed (Personnel, Procurement, Operations, Political, and Finance), it has been praised as an “exceptional example of global best practice”.

Meanwhile, NATO members and partner countries are at high risk for their corruption in their overseas operations, scoring a ‘D’ on average.
