LAC Ministerial Summit on Governance (LACRP Community)

Ministerial Session 1 - Government Integrity: Bringing the pieces together and closing gaps 

Dec 9, 2021 | 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM


Governance, integrity and trust cannot be isolated from other policy areas. Thus, as governments seek to respond to the COVID pandemic, they must not pause their efforts to guarantee that integrity plays an integral role in all of their policy responses. The 2018 OECD-LAC Action Plan offered pathways for the design of a comprehensive integrity and anti-corruption agenda that complements LAC countries’ existing efforts. Some of these pathways have become particularly relevant during the COVID crisis. For this reason, during 2021 the LACRP preparatory webinars examined key topics that merit close attention as governments seek to regain citizen trust in the complex context of dealing with the pandemic: the opportunity of using digital government tools and data, infrastructure and public procurement, and the involvement of private sector, civil society and international cooperation. This session will gather the main inputs and take-aways from the three preparatory webinars as well as other meetings linked to the integrity-trust nexus of this Ministerial. It will discuss key current priorities, highlight remaining gaps, and seek deliver policy recommendations moving forward.
