Anti-corruption and integrity in German development policy: a strategy
The present paper highlights the central role of anti-corruption in German development policy, and supersedes the BMZ Position Paper entitled “Fighting Corruption in German Development Cooperation”, which was published in 2002. The paper is a development-policy directive of the BMZ for the execution of German official development cooperation. This encompasses both Financial and Technical Cooperation programs and activities, including the assignment of German experts and development advisors, and the continued professional training of experts from partner countries. It defines the framework for anti-corruption and identifies steps to be taken by Germany’s official development cooperation actors.
