Anti-Corruption and the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) post 2015 framework: An African perspective

17. april 2013 kl. 13:00 - 14:30

Second meeting in the seminar series: The Millennium Development Goals – African experiences and next steps.

The eight Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) – which range from halving extreme poverty to halting the spread of HIV/AIDS and providing universal primary education, all by the target date of 2015 – form a blueprint agreed to by all the world’s countries and all the world’s leading development institutions. As we are getting closer to 2015 and the international community is planning for the post MDG framework, we are concerned with integrating the anti-corruption agenda in this framework. Corruption is one of the worst impediments to economic and social growth, and it is therefore essential to pay more attention to this problem as we work towards the fullfillment of the MDGs and beyond.
Ms. Chantal Uwimana, Regional Director for Sub-Sahara Africa in Transparency International.

Moderators: Nyonga Rugumayo Amundsen (Chair for PF Millennium), Gro Skaaren-Fystro (Special Adviser, TI-Norway) and Hege Haaland, UD
