Over the last decade, Asian and Pacific societies have realized to what extent corruption damages their social welfare and political and economic stability. In the framework of the ADB OECD Anti-Corruption Initiative, 31 countries of the region have committed to action against corruption: they have jointly developed the Anti-Corruption Action Plan for Asia and the Pacific and work together towards its implementation.
The Initiative is jointly managed by the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the Asian Development Bank (ADB). Its Secretariat supports the countries’ efforts to build effective and sustainable anti-corruption mechanisms through fostering policy dialogue, policy analysis, capacity building and donor coordination, and by providing an extensive online database on the region’s fight against corruption.
