FACTI panel report published

The final report of the High-Level Panel on International Financial Accountability, Transparency and Integrity for Achieving the 2030 Agenda (FACTI panel) has been officially launched today at an event consisting of a high-level segment and a moderated panel discussion.

The launch marks the culmination of a year of work by the expert FACTI Panel members. The report comprises evidence-based recommendations and priority actions, with the aim to contribute to the overall efforts undertaken by Member States to implement the 2030 Agenda. The report calls on governments to agree to a Global Pact for Financial Integrity for Sustainable Development, restoring the amounts lost in financial crimes such as tax abuse, corruption, and money laundering in order to redirect them to finance essential action on poverty, the climate crisis, or COVID-19 recovery.

In a separate event on 2 March, IACA’s Dean, Mr. Thomas Stelzer, will present the report to the Permanent Missions in Vienna. This briefing is organized jointly by the UN Office on Drugs and Crime and the FACTI Panel Secretariat and seeks to foster further engagement and dialogue on the recommendations contained in the report.

In the framework set by the FACTI panel to promote financial integrity for sustainable development, IACA will continue to support initiatives and to lead efforts in anti-corruption through education.
