Fighting Fraud and Corruption in ADB Projects

ADB’s Office of Anticorruption and Integrity (OAI) recognizes that tackling corruption requires a multifaceted approach and a comprehensive network of partnerships and alliances. Tasked to ensure that the finite development funds entrusted to ADB are not misused as a result of fraud and corruption, OAI relies on close collaborations with internal and external partners and stakeholders to fulfill its mandate. OAI’s mandate is underpinned by ADB’s zero tolerance to corruption.  It is aligned with ADB’s broader commitment to combat corruption and improve governance as a core strategic objective ofADB Strategy 2020, and the Paris Declaration on Aid Effectiveness of 2005--to which ADB is a signatory--in support of effective, transparent, and accountable aid.

In 2013, OAI’s anticorruption work focused on prevention, oversight, investigation, and deterrence through partnership, awareness raising, and outreach. Its achievements in 2013 reflect OAI’s close partnership and teamwork with ADB’s governance and operations departments as well as external partners to address fraud, corruption, abuse of resources, and other violations that undermine the integrity and effectiveness of ADB-funded activities.
