Webinar: Power of Data in the Fight Against Corruption

Data can provide insights that can enhance your anti-corruption effort. For example, it can help you pinpoint hotspots, prioritise mitigation, reveal anomalies and make more informed decisions.

The Fight Against Facilitation Payments Initiative (FAFPI) invites you to join the “Power of Data in the Fight Against Corruption” webinar. Here you can learn more about the pros/cons from experienced compliance people and maybe jump-start your organisation’s data enhanced journey.

The Fight Against Facilitation Payments Initiative (FAFPI) is a collective action uniting companies and organisations in the fight against demands for facilitation payments. The initiative was started in 2018 in collaboration with the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Confederation of Danish Industry, companies, and NGOs as a collective multi-stakeholder response to the challenge of the individual company or organisation that cannot address facilitation payments on its own.

Every day, companies and organisations are met with demands for facilitation payments in their business affairs globally, such as when they seek to cross borders, obtain licenses and permits, transport goods, or apply for a service. The payments are often smaller amounts demanded by a government official to speed up the performance of a routine process to which the organisation is already legally entitled.

Facilitation payments are illegal in many countries and create legal, reputational, and operational risks for any organisation and unfair competition. Therefore, fighting facilitation payments is the right thing to do and the sustainable thing to do. FAFPI’s mission contributes directly to the UN Sustainable Development Goal 16: Peace, justice, and strong institutions and 17: Partnerships for the goals.

FAFPI hosts a free webinar series in the coming period to share insights and best practices and discuss these challenges. This webinar is the second in the series and takes place on August 26, 2021, in collaboration with Global Compact and zooming in on the Power of Data in the Fight Against Corruption.
