Fighting Corruption is a Process Not Just a Promise or a Slogan

 

Corruption undermines human development. It corrodes rule of law and destroys public trust in governments and leaders.

The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) make an explicit link between corruption and peaceful, just and inclusive societies. SDG 16 and its targets on reducing bribery, strengthening institutions and accessing information are not only valuable aspirations in their own right, they are also vital conditions for the achievement of all the 17 goals.
