This Sourcebook is a set of modules with a coherent framework. Part I on assessing corruption risk, and Part II on reducing corruption, are divided into modules on particular topics of interest to practitioners engaged in program design and implementation. Section 2 provides the framework that shows how component parts interrelate, and will be most useful to those with a remit or influence that extends to overall sector development.
This is a Sourcebook. It is not a Toolkit setting out how to approach everything, it is not a Cookbook with a collection of recipes for every occasion, and it is not a Best Practice Manual. The state of knowledge in this area is not well enough developed yet to prescribe best practices—and in any case, good practice is always context dependent, never universal. As a Sourcebook, it aims to explain and illustrate approaches and instruments and how they can fit together, and refer the reader to more in-depth material that may be helpful. More than an annotated reading guide, it is nevertheless a starting point, not the end point, for a practitioner understanding of how to reduce corruption and improve governance in the urban electricity sector.
