Anti-Corruption Institutions

Corruption harms everyone by taking tax dollars from needed public services and projects. OGP lead in innovating new solutions and ensuring compliance with international norms.

Introduction and Overview

Corrupt practices affect millions of people worldwide, as tax dollars meant for vital public goods and services disappear. Studies have shown that low-income individuals and families are ultimately most negatively impacted.

Combating corruption is fundamental to the OGP platform. Left unchecked, corruption erodes citizens’ trust in their government and its ability to serve their interests.

OGP countries have used their action plans to drive anti-corruption results in two promising areas: open contracting and disclosure of beneficial ownership of companies.
