Corruption is a concept we’re all aware of. It pervades all aspects of our economy and can often have disastrous consequences. Every year almost $1 trillion is lost to corruption and illicit financial flows. In this talk I will introduce the characteristics of corruption, how it is measured and discuss the global distribution of corrupt practices. I will discuss the subtle relationship between corruption and deaths in natural disasters and suggest possible ways to combat it and, thus, save lives and improve livelihoods.
