Donor Standards in Anti-Corruption Project

Foreign direct assistance to fight public sector corruption has met with mixed success. Even when such assistance is effective in meeting its stated objectives, it often, nonetheless, inadvertently contributes to corruption by introducing aid into resource-scarce areas or into systems with integrity and accountability problems. The 2001 Annual Meeting of the Anti-Corruption Network for Transition Economies (ACN) identified donor standards and co-ordination as key problems in anti-corruption assistance and called for further analysis.

In this context, the Donor Standards in Anti-Corruption Project (DSACP) was undertaken with the aim to identify tentative lessons learned on how aid may be provided to maximize positive impacts. The first phase of the project was carried out by the ACN in collaboration with the Collaborative for Development Action Inc (CDA) from March till September 2002. Seven case studies were carried out identifying some of the key issues that donors and implementing agencies come across when providing anti-corruption assistance. To view the case studies and the end of project report click on the title "Donor Standards in Anti-Corruption Project".
