It is estimated that over a trillion dollars are lost in bribery around the world every year. Such a trend not only creates an obstacle for development, but it also threatens the very existence of democracy, rule of law and human rights. In many developing countries, NGOs and activists working to address the problem of corruption often risk their lives.
In this context, the Finnish Development Cooperation of the Ministry for Foreign Affairs of Finland has published a free online guide called “Anti-Corruption Handbook for Development Cooperation.”
