Join us from 9:00–10:30am on September 19, for the discussion on combating green corruption. The event will highlight the “Green Corruption” approach to tackling nature crime, as well as measures taken by Governments, civil society and international actors in response. The speakers will explore best practices and concrete examples in fighting Green Corruption and identify ways to strengthen the normative framework in the run-up to the Conference of the States Parties of the UN Convention against Corruption, hosted by the United States in Atlanta, Georgia from 11 to 15 December 2023. The panel discussion will look into questions such as:
- What tools exist to fight illicit financial flows associated with Green Corruption?
- What resources do officials, civil society and the business community have to address cases of Green Corruption?
- How can prevention, oversight and enforcement be improved?
- How can the transition to the green economy be achieved without criminal exploitation of people and the environment, for example when sourcing critical minerals?
The event will be held in person in the 6th Floor Auditorium at the Wilson Center, as well as broadcasted online. Light refreshments will be served after the event.
