Implementing Open Contracting and Beneficial Ownership to Combat Corruption in Challenging Contexts

15:10 - 16:30
Room 207, Shaw Centre

Beneficial ownership and open contracting are increasingly incorporated into key anti-corruption commitments by many OGP countries. But many countries - particularly developing countries and those with significant oil, gas and mining sectors - face many difficult and complex implementation challenges. From a lack of technical capacity and resources to the absence of political will, these barriers prevent meaningful and impactful implementation and make it difficult to use these strategies to address real problems, like combating corruption and state capture. In this interactive and participatory session, we will create a space to discuss these challenges, highlighting local stories from developing countries. In small group discussions based on the challenges we identify together, participants will exchange stories, lessons, and, importantly, explore creative approaches that they can successfully adopt and replicate in their local context to ensure these important anti-corruption strategies have impact. Together, we will move the conversation around Beneficial Ownership and Open Contracting forward by identifying innovative ways to deal with the challenges, improve implementation and amplify impact. Participants will leave energized and equipped with new ideas, having connected with and learned from colleagues who are tackling similar barriers.
