WBI anti-corruption activities date back to late 1994, when in collaboration with Transparency International, then-EDI (now WBI) facilitated a first workshop in Uganda. In 1996, in a major speech at the World Bank-International Monetary Fund Annual Meetings, James Wolfensohn, President of the World Bank, unveiled a new program and expressed the institution’s commitment to “…help any of our member countries to implement national programs that discourage corrupt practices.” Since then, the World Bank has mainstreamed anti-corruption programming—and WBI has been amongst those at the forefront of this process, which has entailed an expansion and evolution of WBI’s program, encompassing a broader focus upon action-oriented governance improvements.
