2022 OECD Global Anti-Corruption & Integrity Forum

Enhancing trust and integrity in infrastructure investment

Mar 30, 2022 | 3:00 PM CEST - 4:30 PM CEST


A post-COVID-19 world that is inclusive, open, resilient and sustainable requires rebuilding trust and integrity into the system. Nowhere is this more necessary and challenging than in infrastructure development, where multiple actors, large sums of money and elevated socio-political expectations can be drivers of corruption and conflict. At a time when the need to close the infrastructure gap has never been more urgent, governments and industry are launching innovative solutions, like the Blue Dot Network, to incentivise quality infrastructure investments globally. How can the international community ensure that prevention and detection of corruption are at the heart of these efforts, across all stages of the project life cycle? How can we ensure that infrastructure investments deliver their core purpose of meeting the basic needs of society while also protecting the planet? This session will focus on how stakeholders can practically implement innovative anti-corruption measures, with a focus on public-private cooperation, leading with integrity, and the adoption of new technologies to ensure a sustainable future of quality infrastructure for all.
