Internationally, it has been recognised that corruption in planning, procurement, construction and operation and maintenance (O&M) undermines the sustainability of infrastructure services (defined here as water supply, sanitation, drainage, access roads and paving, transport, solid waste management, street lighting and community buildings). What progress has been made, therefore, in implementing greater accountability to combat corruption in the planning and delivery of infrastructure services? This paper documents the growing interest (in developed and developing countries) in securing greater accountability for the delivery of infrastructure and assesses the potential to improve both provision and performance of infrastructure services.
