Enabling Integrity Through Incentives, Innovation and International Cooperation: MDBs perspectives on Successes and Challenges in the Global Fight against Corruption

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This workshop is designed to:
• Offer examples on how MDBs are promoting integrity/identifying and deterring integrity risks in development projects .
• Present tools to support corruption fighters with new solutions, access to data and cooperation modalities.
• Engage with game changers participating at the conference to learn more about their experiences and shared challenges.

Within the context of anticorruption efforts at global, regional and national levels, MDBs have effectively positioned themselves as game changers, with the introduction of global mechanisms that raise the cost of corruption and heightened integrity due diligence requirements to assess risks posed by their counterparts to the integrity of the projects they finance. The collective impact of work undertaken by MDBs, CSOs, national anticorruption authorities and whistleblowers has created a solid foundation for knowledge sharing and action.

But what is next? There is clearly a need to address some of the more persistent challenges relating to capacity, whistleblowers and rule of law among others so as not to be outdated by new and more sophisticated patterns of fraud and corruption. These challenges include the disclosure of beneficial ownership information, whistleblowers protection, the use of data to proactively identify wrong doing, and increased cooperation with enforcement authorities and international organizations.

More specifically, the workshop will focus on:
(1) Current progress and future opportunities, new tools and emerging challenges within the operational context of MDB Integrity Offices and their growing engagement with (a) governments, (b) private sector and (c) CSOs.

(2) Based on their case portfolio & their existing coordination platform, MDBs representatives will present a number of priority issues while highlighting successes and challenges going forward. Linked to that, the workshop is an opportunity to share an MDB perspective on the global agenda as announced by the commitments made at the UK Anticorruption Summit (May 2016) and the subsequent meeting hosted by France to foster stronger collaboration among International Anticorruption Practitioners.

(3) Beyond cross debarment, what more can MDBs do to develop their role as game changers and global conveners, and ensure that their contribution to global anticorruption efforts is effectively aligned with advocacy efforts and other integrity and transparency initiatives.
