Corruption is rife in Bangladesh and formal systems of accountability are severely undermined by the patron-client nature of political processes. The increased costs of public services due to diversion and misallocation of public resources affect disproportionately the poor and the marginalised.


Reduce corruption for the benefit of the poor and the marginalised in Bangladesh.
