Recognising the common interest of development actors in fighting the risks of corruption in development assistance, in 2016, the OECD Council adopted a new Recommendation for Development Actors on Managing the Risks of Corruption in Development Cooperation (“the Recommendation”). The Recommendation calls on countries to set up or revise their systems for managing risks of corruption and formulating responses to corrupt practices in the management and delivery of aid. It promotes a broad vision of how international development actors can meet their international and regional commitments in the anti-corruption area, including in relation to the bribery of foreign public officials. 
Corruption poses serious threats to development goals and affects the way in which donors respond to Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 16 of Agenda 2030. The objectives of this session are thus two-fold: (i) identify progress made and lessons learned in corruption risk identification, assessment and mitigation practices, and strategies for effective responses to actual instances of corrupt practices in development cooperation; and (ii) discuss the challenges faced and possibilities to make further progress in strengthening anti-corruption measures in the activities conducted or funded by development actors.
