About the Webinar:
"Corruption presents a real threat in the achievement of SDG targets. There are SDG targets which focus on corruption and good governance couched in Goal 16. Despite their co-relation and impact on other SDG targets, they are measured in isolation, an inherent difficulty in measuring the progress of SDGs at a global level. Whilst such measurements are important and provide an overall milestone in progress, it is paramount that specific challenges to each SDG goal and targets are not ignored, so that no one is left behind as SDGs really meant to be. To this end, the risks that corruption bring in achieving each SDG target should be identified and counter measures be designed based on local realities. Based on work undertaken by Transparency International and its local offices, this session will explore how SDG anti-corruption targets could be integrated into all SDGs, their challenges and the specific role CSOs can play.
