Multilateral development banks (MDBs) commonly finance projects and activities in post-conflict and weak governance environments at significant risk of corruption and the potential misuse of funds.  Following IACC’s theme of “Together for Development, Peace, and Security: Now is the time to Act,” the MDBs will share insights from investigations of fraud, corruption, and other forms of misconduct in high-risk environments. Topics that will be covered include:

•    What challenges do the integrity offices of MDBs face when conducting investigations in post-conflict and weak governance environments?  
•    How can these challenges be addressed to facilitate oversight and investigative activity in capacity-constrained environments?
•    What insights can be shared through investigations of projects in high-risk environments? How can these inform investigative strategy and tactics to better protect funds?

Session Rapporteur: Annelle Gonzales de Jesus
