Good Anti-Corruption Practices in the Water, Education and Health Sectors in Sub-Saharan Africa

UNDP has previously undertaken broader mapping and assessment of good anti-corruption practices at international level within the three sectors of water, health and education. The main purpose of this desk study is to map existing good anti-corruption practices in the water, health and education sectors at national and sub-national level in Sub-Saharan Africa with a view to contributing to the MDG acceleration process. In so doing, this study investigates select corruption risks in the water, health and education sectors, and what anticorruption interventions have been applied at local and/or national levels to address these risks. Attention is given to establishing specificities around process, experiences and outcomes, what factors help and/or hinder anti-corruption interventions and what lessons can be drawn for possible replication elsewhere. The aim is to obtain knowledge regarding the relevance and effectiveness of these good anti-corruption practices, with the overall objective of developing a methodology for mainstream anti-corruption strategies in the water, health and education sectors with a view to contributing to MDG acceleration in the region.

Survey on Public Perceptions of Corruption in the Education Sector

Survey on Public Perceptions of Corruption in the Education Sector

28 May 2014

Analysis of findings from this survey on perceptions of corruption in the Kosovo education system are very enlightening, showing that the perception of corruption in this specific sector is similar as the overall perception of corruption in Kosovo, based on other studies conducted in the past.

The survey is designed to measure actual corruption levels in the education system in Kosovo by assessing the genuine perceptions of corruption among specific target groups that are in daily contact with education, the results provide useful insight into various aspects of corruption as a problem.

The study, aside from describing the level of awareness of the corruption phenomena, and its roots, also sheds light to the Kosovans’ good understanding of its various causes.
