Aid is a fantastic investment but the problem is that not all of it reaches the intended beneficiaries due to corruption, fraud and mismanagement. This paper argues for a reinvention of development aid: a transformation whereby feedback loops are introduced to make aid more efficient. Joy Saunders argues that integrating feedback from citizens – those who understand the local context and needs better than anyone else - into the development process has the potential to radically improve aid delivery.
This paper will review the rise of the anti-corruption movement, and show that the most successful anti-corruption efforts have commitment from political leaders as well as public support. There is considerable global evidence on the active role civil society has played over the years in promoting participatory government and holding government to account. A strong partnership and sense of collective responsibility between civil society and government is vital to build strong democracies and reverse the negative effects of corruption.
As transparency, accountability and openness emerge as predominant international development themes, it is increasingly widely accepted that opening information will bring significant benefits by encouraging people to question what their governments are doing, reducing opportunities for corruption, and increasing the impact of aid.
