    Coordinator: Kulan Amin, Programme Manager – Poverty & Development, Transparency International – Secretariat

    The constituency for corruption-free development includes their most numerous stakeholders – disadvantaged and vulnerable populations. Yet, year after year, they continue to be seen as the ‘main victims of corruption’ undermining public trust in the effectiveness of development efforts.

    How has the anti-corruption community worked with disadvantaged populations? How have they used spaces created for their participation? What efforts have been made to work with social movements, development NGOs, local governments, administrators, politicians? What needs to happen for more actors to see integrity as more attractive than corruption? How can we re-engage disadvantaged populations that have lost trust in the anti-corruption and development rhetoric of their leaders?

    Representatives ranging from the UNDP’s Democratic Governance Group, the African Parliamentarians Network Against Corruption (APNAC) and the Local Government in India to civil society organisations working across Africa and Asia share their experiences of fighting corruption to achieve development outcomes.

    TIRI and TI’s National Chapters will showcase a variety of approaches that have proved successful in creating a space for participation in development planning, safeguarding financial resources for development and reconstruction programmes and getting responses on complaints. Lessons will be drawn from TIRI’s work in Afghanistan, Palestine, Kyrgyzstan, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Kenya and Uganda. TI’s UNDP supported programme will look at lessons from Bolivia, India, Uganda and Zambia. The UNDP will provide an overview of the corruption challenges in the use of public resources for development.

    Elected representatives from India and Zambia will share their own efforts to deliver on development promises in the context of entrenched corruption. The role of APNAC in bringing together political leaders around anti-corruption efforts has inspired TI’s Development Pact that addresses political and administrative accountability. A video on the local government effort, along with a presentation of the Chair of a ‘Best Panchayat’ in Rajasthan outlines the role of political will among political leaders.
