Enhancing Government Effectiveness & Transparency: The Fight Against Corruption

Follow the event on Twitter #UnitedAgainstCorruption

Corruption has a disproportionate impact on the poor and most vulnerable, increasing costs and reducing access to services, including health, education and justice. Corruption also impedes investments needed to achieve growth and development objectives while eroding trust in government and undermining the social contract.

The World Bank has undertaken a fresh assessment of challenges governments face in tackling corruption, what instruments tend to work and why, and how incremental progress is being achieved in specific country contexts. This flagship report is a timely piece of work that shows positive examples of how countries are progressing in their fight to #EndCorruption. Join us LIVE as we discuss the report and its findings with an expert panel about how the lessons learned can guide policy makers and anti-corruption champions.
