The Maritime Anti-Corruption Network

A Model for Public-Private Cooperation against Graft

Fighting maritime corruption could increase market competitiveness and economic inclusivity in order to save an annual US$2 billion in customs revenue. The 2011 MANC approach is an industry led-initiative to rid the maritime industry of corruption and promote fair trade. MANC has over 70 global member companies that include vessel-owning organizations within the maritime industry, cargo owners and service providers. 

In our latest Integrity in Brief, BSR's Allison Taylor and Martin Benderson detail the challenges and successes of combating maritime corruption. Through case studies highlighting anti-corruption efforts in Nigeria and Indonesia, the global community sees that the project has a positive impact on the transparency of regulation for import and export of goods, and has improved accountability of government stakeholders to the private sector. 



This brief was made possible thanks to the generous support of the Laura and John Arnold Foundation.
