May 24, 2023 | 2:30 PM - 4:00 PM

CC 1


Providers of development co-operation have adopted a Zero Tolerance stance against corruption, but what does it entail? Views diverge as how best to operationalise this principle to strike a suitable balance between safeguarding development funds and attaining relevant development objectives. This session will clarify the meaning and value-added of the Zero Tolerance principle in development co-operation; identify progress made and lessons learned in corruption risk management; and review any challenges for further progress towards an effective application and calibration of the Zero Tolerance approach, as the basis for sustainable development.
