Course prerequitsites

In order to ensure a shared basic knowledge of definitions, terminology and concepts of corruption and anti-corruption, prospective participants must complete our self-paced Essentials of Anti-Corruption I module before they can take this course. Essentials of Anti-Corruption II: Development Programming is also recommended, but not required.

What you'll learn

  • The different types of risks that corruption poses to development programming.
  • What measures can help to mitigate such risks.
  • How to integrate risk management into various stages of the programme cycle.

Note that this course is not a how to-course on specific mitigation measures related to a particular service or activity. There are specialised courses available for many of these areas by other providers. This U4 course offers a conceptual framework to identify, assess and respond to the risks that corruption poses to your development goals.
