Fighting Fraud and Corruption in ADB Projects
ADB is entrusted with public funds to help achieve its vision of a prosperous, inclusive, resilient, and sustainable Asia and Pacific region. The Office of Anticorruption and Integrity (OAI) leads the integrity initiatives of ADB through the conduct of investigations, project procurement-related reviews, integrity due diligence, and knowledge-sharing with ADB’s stakeholders.
OAI’s mandate is underpinned by ADB’s zero tolerance for corruption. It is aligned with ADB’s broader commitment to combat corruption and improve governance as an operational priority of ADB Strategy 2030.
In the strategy, ADB reiterates that the ability of countries to develop resilience from disasters and economic shocks stems from institutions and governance, free from corruption and other integrity violations. Through transparent, effective, and accountable aid, ADB seeks sustainable and inclusive paths toward sustainable growth and poverty reduction.
