CONFERENCE THEME

The 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development can only be achieved when the right conditions are in place. The journey towards attaining sustainable development goals can be derailed when there is threat to the rule of law, and good governance practices. Therefore, reducing the potential for financial crime is crucial for ensuring stable conditions which are needed to secure the goals of the 2030 Agenda. Given the links between the threat of corruption, the lack of transparency in governance, and economic disparities, a systematic approach is required. We invite conference delegates to deliberate on the importance of financial transparency as it relates to the various SDGs.
