Guidance note 10

Innovation in Tackling the Risks of Corruption in PEPs

The objective of this note is to look at the challenges PEPs face in tackling the risks of corruption, and highlight innovative ways in which programmes are doing so. Different forms of corruption are defined, high risk areas for corruption in PEPs are outlined, and strategies to address such corruption are explored. These include the use of participatory local processes, high
levels of transparency and access to information, strategies to harness the power of new technology, and empowerment of stakeholders to hold different role players accountable. Monitoring and evaluation systems have a vital role to play, and the mechanisms for investigating allegations of corruption and taking decisive action where required are also vital.
