This session is organised by Targeting Natural Resource Corruption, Knowledge Partner of the virtual 2021 OECD Global Anti-Corruption & Integrity Forum. The language of this session is English. COVID-19 is the result of zoonotic transmission, an ongoing threat as habitats are increasingly destroyed or encroached upon. The pandemic compounds the urgency for managing natural resources wisely as the globe builds back, already a critical issue in light of global climate change. Corruption undermines every aspect of wise management, and an expanded and informed constituency for addressing corruption’s impact on the environment is needed. This panel will present new research on the dynamics of corruption in natural resource management and new perspectives on the challenges of integrating effective response to corruption into the stewardship of our remaining natural resources. Panelists will discuss the impact of high-value resources and political interest on community-based natural resource management efforts in Madagascar; the effect of informal networks and norms on environmental management regimes in Peru; and challenges and opportunities building common ground across conservation and anti-corruption, with a focus on terminology, priorities, and alliances.
