Anti-Corruption Handbook for Development Practitioners

Anti-Corruption Handbook for Development Practitioners (PDF, 1,97 Mt, 214 s.)

The 220-page book, free for download and produced by Finland’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs, offers development practitioners a comprehensive analysis of types of corruption in the field and pointers on how to avoid it.

The objective of the Handbook is to provide conceptual and technical guidance to enable “development practitioners” to:

  • Become better equipped to effectively support the anti-corruption work in development co-operation
  • Acquire useful tools to analyse the governance situations by using tools like governance assessments (GAs) and the United Nations Convention Against Corruption (UNCAC) and thus, to fulfil the potential provided by these tools, and promote political dialogue and operational activities
  • Better contribute to the design and implementation of development programmes by mainstreaming governance and anti-corruption (GAC) issues and to better design and follow-up on specific anti-corruption programmes, NGO support, general budget and sector support
  • Become familiar with the legislative and judicial means of strengthening governance and preventing corruption.
