2018 OECD Global Anti-Corruption and Integrity Forum

2018 OECD Global Anti-Corruption and Integrity Forum

27 – 28 March 2018, Paris, France

Planet Integrity: Building a Fairer Society

Globalisation – the increasing integration of economies in terms of flows of goods, services, capital, people and ideas – has transformed the planet. While it has brought immense benefits, lifting hundreds of millions out of poverty, creating economic growth and increasing the range and affordability of goods and services worldwide, it has not benefited everyone equally and countries and individuals remain vulnerable.

Under the theme “Planet Integrity”, the Forum will debate how integrity cultivates a level playing field for business, reduces socio-economic inequalities, and makes public policies more effective – enhancing the benefits of globalisation for all. The debates will also focus on the governance of globalisation and its role in curbing corruption and unethical practices in areas such as trade, competition, infrastructure, development cooperation, and revenue collection.

Join the Forum to:

  • Shape the debate on fairer globalisation, integrity and inclusive growth
  • Engage with global leaders and leading anti-corruption practitioners
  • Exchange experiences, good practices and insights
  • Contribute to critical thinking and engage in peer-to-peer networking

Eng. Martin Manuhwa, Chairman of the WFEO Standing Technical Committee on Anti-Corruption, will be a panelist to the high-level session on integrity/anti-corruption in infrastructure projects that will take place during the plenary at the Forum on 27 March 2018.

Overview of the session

Infrastructure projects provide a common good, with positive direct and indirect benefits for the economy and society as a whole. Investment constitutes a significant share of the gross domestic product (GDP) in OECD countries, close to 20% on average (OECD Integrity Framework for Public Infrastructure, 2016). Yet, public infrastructure projects are complex and expensive, offering numerous entry points for fraud and corruption that can undermine strategic objectives and benefits to the public.

Procurement processes and global supply chains are well-known high-risk areas. Industries linked to infrastructure projects, such as engineering, construction and real-estate can also be vulnerable. To manage the complexity of this environment, mechanisms to ensure integrity and effective risk management are critical at all stages of the project life cycle.

This session will explore the economic and social impact of corruption and fraud in delivery of public infrastructure, the challenges and solutions for managing risks across the project cycle, and emerging issues.
