Promoting public integrity is necessary to achieve SDGs and is key in the achievement of SDG16 to foster accountability and transparency in public life. Such a culture of accountability and integrity is powerful to prevent corrupt practices and participates in the efforts to fight against corruption.
Confronted for instance with the “Lava Jato” case involving public officials and SOEs, commitments and innovative projects emerged to strengthen public accountability and financial transparency. They cover commitments and actions within the OGP, but also national or local public integrity and financial transparency initiatives and reforms. The Network for integrity –14 institutions worldwide working to strengthen public integrity, transparency, and ethics– is a platform to discuss best practices of members & partners.
Discussions will cover presentations of experiments fostering a public culture of accountability. This will be an opportunity to recall the commitments to supporting SDG16.
