We are happy to launch our new online tool, DevelopmentCheck, a platform for collective action and citizen feedback on development projects.
Over the past decade there has been great interest in the power of citizens to transform society. Engaged citizens are seen as essential in fighting corruption, promoting transparency and accountability, strengthening governance and improving development outcomes. Yet, the evidence base linking citizen action to improved results is often questioned. Yesterday saw an interesting panel discussion on citizen’s role in tackling corruption held at the ODI, London.

OPENNESS AND ACCOUNTABILITY IN PUBLIC INFRASTRUCTURE COULD SAVE $2.5 TRILLION BY 2020
It is estimated that, by 2020, upwards of $2.5 trillion annually could be lost on an international level through corruption, mismanagement and inefficiency in construction. Governments and the international construction sector now have the potential to combat this by signing up to the Construction Sector Transparency Initiative (CoST).
