Sustainable, Creative and Innovative Approaches to Combating Corruption and Fraud
"Elevating Anti-Corruption and Fraud Narratives, Training, Capacity-building, Advocacy, Public Education, Information Dissemination, Outreach, Awareness Creation and Sensitization Paradigms"
The phenomenon of endemic corruption and fraud has become a topical issue across the globe in recent years. Not surprisingly, it has gained notoriety and widely acknowledged as being responsible for much of the critical pervasive and emerging developmental challenges facing countries, people, communities, societies and humanity in general particularly, within the context of Africa and other developing regions of the world.
Systemic corruption and fraud is one of the most pressing global challenges and presents formidable difficulty, danger and threat to achieving sustainable development and for that matter, the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Its a bad situation, which has become a dent on the conscience of many individuals, groups, institutions, organizations and communities globally.
Critical areas that are hardest hits by systemic corruption and fraud include provision of essential public and social services, amenities and infrastructure, the very poor, vulnerable and underprivileged. Corruption and fraud also hugely influences the critical decision making processes, decisions and actions of public, civil, corporate and private sector leaders, policy/decision makers and other key officials.
Further, it has tremendous effects on cost of living, doing business and return on investment, individual self-determination, development and actualization, sustainable and human development. Again, corruption and fraud severely impede democracy, good governance, accountability and transparency, equitable distribution of resources, human rights, peace and security.
On the basis of the fundamental influences and effects of systemic corruption and fraud including those aforementioned, it’s obvious that achieving sustainable development and for that matter, the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) becomes extremely difficult or even impossible in any country where corruption and fraud thrives.
It is therefore important to extend the needed attention to the increasing corrupt and fraudulent practices affecting social, economic, democratic and human development, and eroding gains made by individuals, groups, agencies, institutions and organizations.
Fortunately, the devastating influences and effects of corruption and fraud are well known, documented and extensively discussed.
But what are we individually, doing in our own small way to play a meaningful role in mitigating systemic corruption and fraud at the international, national, local and community level, within our immediate environments and circles of influence?
And can the fight to mitigate corruption and fraud be achieved?
The strategic instruments for achieving this exist.
However, the missing link lies in constant and consistent engagement, acquisition, effective and efficient application of these strategic instruments by individuals, groups, professionals, activists, advocates, campaigners and organizations passionate and committed to the cause of anti-corruption, democracy, equitable distribution of resources, sustainable development, good governance, transparency, accountability, equity, equal rights, liberty, fair and just society.
This is an actionable training, capacity-building, public education, information dissemination, awareness creation and sensitization program that prepares you adequately to play an effective, efficient and meaningful role in the effort being made to mitigate corruption and fraud across all levels of society and to become an impactful leader, change maker and/or agent through the acquisitions, effective and efficient application of these strategic instruments and tools.
It offers participants the requisite high leverage, innovative and applicable strategies, competencies, instruments, tools, information, insights and exposure on corruption and fraud early warning signs, detection, prevention and response actions.
The training introduces a new frontier of methodological and systematic empowerment of the grassroots, anti-corruption activists, advocates and campaigners, students, youth, lower and mid-level corporate, public, civil and private sector professionals, employees, any individuals who are passionate and committed to the cause of anti-corruption, democracy, equitable distribution of resources, sustainable development, good governance, transparency, accountability, equity, equal rights, liberty, fair and just society and other key stakeholders to lead the fight against corruption and fraud.
The time to act is now! Stand up and be counted!
