Asset Recovery in OGP: Peer-Learning on Recovery, Return, and Monitoring - Lessons from the Field

13:40 - 15:00
Room 205, Shaw Centre

This session aims to promote peer-learning in assets recovery and utilisation. Assets recovery is yielding profits in Nigeria including investments for the government’s social intervention programs for Nigeria’s poorest citizens. Sri Lanka, Tunisia and Ukraine have equally stepped up efforts to recover stolen assets but have increasingly faced questions about utilization and management. What are the factors responsible for the different outcomes in assets recovery and utilisation in these countries? What are the major lessons for countries having assets recovery in their OGP processes? What can national, regional and international networks do to remove bottlenecks facing assets recovery by victim countries and local politics that undermine credible utilisation? These are the questions that would engage this session. At the end of this session, specific recommendations on how to strengthen the implementation of the GFAR Principles in OGP Countries will be proposed and participants will build a coalition that will seek the removal of obstacles to assets recovery and canvass mechanism for collaborative, inclusive and transparent utilisation of recovered assets in victim countries. The Best Practices on monitoring of recovered assets and utilisation will be shared with participants.
