Transparency International (TI) says that the failure by governments to address corruption is threatening the fulfilment of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).

It however called on governments, donors and NGOs to adopt anti-corruption measures in all their MDG action plans to reach the goals in the next five years and sustain progress beyond the 2015 timeline.

TI chairperson, Huguette Labelle, points out that governance breakdowns and corruption are significantly slowing down the progress towards the MDGs. Labelle states that, “As we take stock, it is clear that anti-corruption and good governance measures need to be fully integrated in all future development efforts."
