Launch of the Interim Report of the High-Level Panel on International Financial Accountability, Transparency and Integrity for Achieving the 2030 Agenda
24 Sep 2020 -  The COVID-19 pandemic has made achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development both more urgent and more elusive. The shortfall in public resources needed to meet the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) is set to widen, as countries marshal and redirect vast sums toward an effective response to the crisis. Against this background, the imperative to strengthen systems of accountability, transparency and integrity assumes greater importance than ever.
The event is being convened to present the interim report of the FACTI Panel, which identifies the major gaps in implementation and the systemic shortcomings of the existing international frameworks for tax cooperation, anti-corruption, anti-money laundering. It will provide a high-level forum for discussing the priority actions for addressing the identified challenges, particularly in light of the impact of the COVID-19 crisis on progress toward the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
