Corruption is unfortunately often linked with poverty and is exacerbating poverty in several ways. Sida has therefore set a high priority on its work on anti-corruption and is investigating all allegations of corruption or fraud. Corruption reports are published regularly here on Openaid.se.
After an investigation is completed and the matter is not subject to confidentiality, a concluding memorandum is published on Openaid. Nearly 100 new corruption reports were published on Openaid.se recently, as part of Sida’s work to increase transparency and to contribute to controlling that Swedish aid funds are used for intended purposes. These reports are currently only available in Swedish.
Everyone can report suspicions of corruption or fraud directly to Sida. Information on how to report corruption is available on Sida.se.
“The trend in incoming suspicions has increased in recent years, but my estimate is that we will end up at about the same level this year as in 2014”, says Lotta Sandö, corruption investigator at Sida.
