Methodological guide for corruption risk assessments in fisheries value chains

This methodological guide, developed by WWF Peru with support from the USAID-funded Targeting Natural Resource Corruption project, serves to assess the corruption risks in the squid and mahi mahi fisheries value chains in Peru. While initially tailored to the specific context of Peru, this guide offers adaptability for broader application across sectors and contexts. It emphasizes and suggests adaptability, allowing users to modify the methodology to suit their specific needs and circumstances, including changing the order of methodological phases, adding more data collection steps, or applying alternative validation methods. This guide provides a simplified, yet comprehensive, overview of the corruption risk assessment process, though it cautions that practical implementation may demand careful planning due to its potentially labor-intensive nature. Ultimately, this guide serves as a valuable starting point for practitioners seeking to conduct similar assessments, drawing from WWF Peru's project experience and organized around four key methodological phases, with information on the sources used to design each part of the process.
