Funding partners

The U4 partnership is a network of bilateral international development agencies and foreign ministries working to understand and address corruption.
23 September 2021

The U4 Anti-Corruption Resource Centre (U4) comes from donors collaborating to curb corruption. Bilateral development agencies and foreign affairs ministries have run this successful institutional partnership for twenty years.

U4's partners are likeminded agencies whose goal is to make lives better. Our task is to help the partners achieve results through effective anti-corruption efforts.

The bilateral international development agencies and foreign ministries on this page take part in the U4 Anti-Corruption Resource Centre partnership, and provide funding.

We currently have partners in eight countries: Canada, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Norway, Sweden, Switzerland, and the United Kingdom.
