Governments around the world are taking broad and rapid actions to address an unprecedented health emergency and economic crisis. The speed and scale of governments’ responses to the crisis have placed enormous strains on the public sector and presented new and deepened opportunities for corruption to flourish.
The World Bank, the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) have joined forces to produce a Good Practices Guide on Preventing and Managing Conflicts of Interest in the Public Sector.

Our institutions will be discussing the Guide and the challenges and opportunities for preventing conflicts of interest in the public sector with practitioners, academics and civil society at the forthcoming International Anti-Corruption Conference (IACC) hosted by Transparency International and the Republic of Korea. We look forward to a rich discussion and to continuing our support to this vital agenda.
