Inspiration and guidance for understanding the importance of influencing the decisions, policies and practices of people with power to bring about positive, sustainable change to specific development issues.

Poor governance and corruption affect us all. They can undermine development and often hurt the poorest communities most.

This booklet highlights practical actions that can be taken to combat corruption and rise to the challenge of placing God’s justice at the heart of our societies. It includes stories from around the world of different groups challenging corruption and promoting good governance. It also points organisations towards tools and resources that will equip them to become more involved in this important global struggle.
