Targeting Natural Resource Corruption

Harnessing knowledge, generating evidence, and supporting innovative policy and practice for more effective anti-corruption programming

Situation Analysis

Good project design requires a common understanding of the context — both the biological environment and the social, economic, political, and institutional systems that affect desired outcomes. Corruption can directly facilitate harms to biodiversity, nature, and people, or it can threaten the success of initiatives to protect these values, so understanding these threats should be part of any situation analysis.

This page provides information, guidance, and tools for practitioners who seek to integrate a corruption lens into situation analysis and program design. The contents outline ways to analyze the impact of corruption on conservation outcomes and assess the strengths and weaknesses of programming responses in a specific context.
