Background

 While ICT is not a magic bullet when it comes to ensuring greater transparency and less corruption, the use of ICT as a tool in anti-corruption efforts has a potential in engaging people, increasing access to information and improving transparency in a number of important areas:
 
 In the East Asia Pacific (EAP) region, where the efforts to tap into the ICT as a tool to curb corruption has grown significantly, learning from the experiences of others will provide practical guidance on how to reap benefits from better understanding of the challenges and opportunities from the use of ICT in anti-corruption efforts.   
 
 Some of the efforts have been inspired by an Indian website, ipaidabribe.com.  Launched in August 2010, this website has worked with the government to tackle corruption by harnessing the collective energy of citizens. 

 This regional learning VC wishes to bring together civil society organizations government counterparts, and other stakeholders to discuss and exchanges perspectives and experiences on:

 

 -the role and the use of ICT in the fight against corruption and how to make best use of the technology;

 -given the long standing and history of civil society & citizens movements in the EAP region, how does ICT contribute to this movement
