Making Anti-Corruption Approaches Work for the Poor

Anti-corruption activity has intensified in recent years but there has been little specific discussion about how this activity will be formulated to ensure it brings benefit to the poor. The purpose of this report is to raise awareness of the need for greater attention to the poor in the development of anti-corruption strategies, to discuss some of the key issues that might affect the development of a pro-poor anti-corruption strategy for the water sector and suggests three basic principles in the development of a pro-poor anti-corruption water sector strategy.
