I've been involved in PPPs for about 8 years now, at different levels as Operator, Facilitator, and Regulator, and I am convinced they can help in the reduction of poverty. They can be used as a tool to fight corruption in development, but also, as highlighted in the backgrounder document, there are several seamless routes for corruption to thrive. However, the more service users (general public) are involved in the development, procurement, and implementation processes, the less the incidences of corruption. One of my very inspiring Bosses always says "Sunlight is the Best Disinfectant". This basically means transparency and disclosure. Disclose the projects at development phase, maintain a transparent procurement regime, and disclose the KPIs in the PPP contract (service levels) to the general public. The users then become the informal "regulator", thereby helping to reducing corruption
