Fighting Corruption at the Grassroots Level in the Kecamatan Development Project

Case study - Indonesia


The Kecamatan Development Programme (KDP) is a nationwide water development programme run by the Government of Indonesia with support from the World Bank. The risks of corruption surrounding the project are high: its large scale, dispersion, and an environment of generally low accountability contribute to the risks.



Anti-corruption strategies have been built into the project to reduce the risk of corruption. These focus primarily on reducing number of transactions, reducing discretion in the transfer system, standardizing grant amounts, and streamlining formats to promote easy understanding by end-users.
