Integrity and Anti-Corruption

IDB Group Policy on Integrity


The concepts of integrity and combating corruption and fraudulent practices are well established by Shariah from which the founding instruments of the Islamic Development Bank Group (“IDB Group”) take their spirit. Hence, article twelve of the IDB Articles of Agreement stipulates that the IDB has an obligation to ensure that its resources and facilities are used only for their intended purposes.

Based on these core values, IDB Group management recognizes that the appropriate and efficient use and management of resources and funds are fundamental prerequisites for achieving the IDB Group’s primary objectives, which are to contribute to the reduction of poverty and support sound development in IDB Group member countries. To achieve this, the IDB Group established the Group Integrity Office (“GIO”) to combat corruption and fraudulent practices on IDB related projects.
