The Global Infrastructure Anti-Corruption Centre (GIACC) has announced the launch of its upgraded website containing the GIACC Resource Centre:

The GIACC Resource Centre provides free online information, advice and tools designed to help understand, prevent and deal with corruption, including:

  • Corruption information: Detailed analysis of what is corruption; why corruption occurs; how corruption occurs; why avoid corruption; liability for corruption; cost of corruption; and hypothetical examples of how different types of corruption occur.
  • Anti-corruption programmes for organisations; governments; funders; project owners; and business associations / professional institutions.
  • Project Anti-Corruption System (PACS): A set of measures designed to help prevent corruption on major projects.
  • Anti-corruption measures: Specific anti-corruption measures which an organisation can implement, either separately, or as part of an anti-corruption programme.
  • Anti-corruption training:
    • An on-line anti-corruption training module (available in English, Spanish, French, German, Italian, Polish and Romanian).
    • An anti-corruption training manual (available in English, Spanish and Chinese).
  • Dealing with corruption: Advice on how organisations, individuals, and the public can deal with corrupt situations.
  • Information on anti-corruption conventions; forums; indices and surveys; and initiatives.

These resources have been written by experts in the field, and can be accessed and downloaded at no charge.

Since its initial launch in 2008, the GIACC Resource Centre has been visited on-line by organisations and individuals from 190 countries.

GIACC is an independent not-for-profit organisation which:

  • promotes the implementation of anti-corruption measures as an integral part of government, corporate and project management; and
  • provides free resources to assist in understanding, preventing and dealing with corruption.

GIACC’s main focus is on the infrastructure sector, but its resources can be adapted and used by public and private sector organisations and individuals in all sectors and countries.
