Since 2002, the Joint Donor Anti-Corruption Fund (FAC) in Nicaragua worked with the national government to respond to corruption. The FAC brought together a group of nine donors to jointly support the strengthening of public institutions. This effort provides interesting lessons in terms of multi-donor funds, which can establish a common donor voice, place anti-corruption on the agenda, and foster coordination between government bodies. These lessons can help inform joint efforts elsewhere.
