Transparency at Work: Lessons learned from Africa

APR 14, 2020 15:00 CET

Platform Zoom

About

Strengthening transparency is often seen as an effective and pragmatic tool to tackle corruption in fisheries. However, even with a greater public interest in the fisheries sector, basic information still often remains out of the public domain, diminishing the prospect of effective oversight and accountability.

This webinar will highlight practical insights from transparency efforts in African countries, including from the first transparency reports on fisheries management in Seychelles and Mauritania. Further, the webinar will provide guidance for stakeholders (especially policy makers) on how to implement transparency endeavours and how to overcome technical challenges or political reluctancies.
