Fighthing Corruption in Developing Countries. The Role of Leaders

I am looking for ideas to start a study on how to "eliminate" corruption in developing countries. Actually, most developing countries depend on rich countries and international organizations to run their internal affairs. On a leadership standpoint, what could effective leaders do?
At a time rich countries start cutting their budget to overcome economic disasters, developing countries increase their expenses and their social projects. What could we do as leaders? I would like to have ideas from various sources across the world.

Eliminating Corruption

I am living in a developing country where corruption is one of the biggest barriers to prosperity:
- Corruption takes away the money from where it must be spent, private houses in stead of infrastructure, luxury cars in stead of schools etc.
- Corruption prevents the business from effectiveness: long and complicated procedures to force people to pay for doing business, raising cost and discouraging the investors etc and a thousand other problems caused by the corruption.
But your question is how to eliminate it?
It is hard and surely there are many ways, but as a leader, what we can do is to adopt a pure and clean position in whatever we do (don't be corrupted and say no to any kind of practices that directly or indirectly support the corruption) and transfer in our surroundings (company, family, group and society). Or simply, be a anti-corrupted example. Despite of the disadvantages caused by this practices.
