SDGs, Anti-corruption and Equity: Leave No-one Behind to Deliver on the SDGs

This interactive session will present ideas for tracking national progress on corruption across the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It will draw on good practice experience for designing anti-corruption policies and indicators that have been used in a variety of country contexts and by different sectors (health, education and climate). The session will discuss practical mechanisms for how to deliver on SDG 3 (health and well-being), SDG 4 (quality education) and SDG 13 (climate action) by bringing corruption-related policies and indicators into the other goals at the national level. The overall objective is to ensure that the SDGs are implemented with equity and that no one is ‘left behind’ in all countries – from Australia to Zambia.
The session is extremely timely as governments, as well as regional and international institutions, attempt to generate the policies and the political will needed to deliver on the SDGs. The integration of anti-corruption measures (policies and indicators) across all the goals is viewed as essential to their overall success. In this sense, corruption commitments (target 16.5) as outlined in Goal 16 must extend beyond this one goal. Experts working on corruption measurement and policies in the health, education and climate sectors will share their ideas and experiences through the interactive circle, providing practical solutions.

The need for such an exchange is based on the experiences of the previous global development framework (i.e. Millennium Development Goals). Under the MDGs, the absence of specific commitments on governance and corruption is seen as undermining country progress to meet these goals. Moreover, marginalised and poor groups, who often suffer the worst forms of corruption, were seen as being left behind from progress even when their countries met the aggregate global development targets for areas such as health and education.

Overall, the aims of workshop are to:

1. Highlight practical channels to track progress on corruption across specific SDGs that help to translate political will into concrete and visible actions.

2. Present national-level policies and indicators that will enable the measurement of progress on corruption in other SDGs.

3. Present good practices and lessons learnt from fighting corruption in key sectors and issues covered by the SDGs to ensure that no one is left behind because of corruption.
