Ep.38 Could implementing the Anti Corruption Summit commitments have helped countries better ensure transparency and accountability in their COVID 19 response?

In 2016, Forty-three countries from all global regions attended the Anti-Corruption Summit in London. The Summit sought to help countries put fighting corruption at the heart of their policies and institutions. At the end, countries signed the Global Declaration against Corruption and made several country-specific Summit commitments.

On today’s podcast, we had Transparency International’s Lucia Cirimello and Step Up Nigeria’s Onyinye Ough discuss the progress being made by countries to implement anti-corruption summit commitments. They also shared the specific commitments they think will be relevant towards ensuring more transparency and accountability in the management of funds for the COVID 19 response, as well as adverse effects of non-implementation of these commitments.
