Anti-corruption Approaches in Sector Work

Sector specific anti-corruption approaches are necessary complements to general anti-corruption strategies. Here is a collection of information and lessons learned on how anti-corruption can effectively be mainstreamed into sectors.

This U4 Theme looks at tools and strategies that integrate anti-corruption in various sectors. The publications aim to assess what works, what does not, and why. However, evidence and operational guidance in this area is still limited. Therefore, U4 continues to explore this topic further. 

This U4 Theme aims to help with:

  1. Understanding the rationale and value of sector approaches for anti-corruption
  2. Demonstrating how corruption negatively affects sector activities
  3. Identifying sector specific corruption risks 
  4. Understanding how to integrate anti-corruption efforts into sector policies and strategies
  5. Raising awareness of the challenges and opportunities for integrating anti-corruption in sector work

Unlocking local solutions to improve health and education

Local organisations are ubiquitous and bristling with ideas to engage citizens in holding their governments accountable for promises made on access to healthcare and education. A project by the Results for Development Institute (Transparency & Accountability Program) serves local organisations who work to collect data on public spending and public services, and share that information with their community so that they can collectively advocate to improve accountability and raise the quality of public services. In this video, project staff and board members explain the thinking behind the programme, and combine this with voices from the three short-form documentaries released this month that will become part of the programme participants' advocacy work in their own communities.

The many faces of corruption: Tracking vulnerabilities at the sector level

How can policymakers and practitioners better comprehend the many forms and shapes that corruption takes? From the delivery of essential drugs, the reduction in teacher absenteeism, the containment of illegal logging, the construction of roads, the provision of water and electricity, the international trade in oil and gas, the conduct of public budgeting and procurement, and the management of public revenues, corruption shows its many faces. This book attempts to bring greater clarity to the often murky manifestations of this virulent and debilitating social disease.
