Today is International Anti-Corruption Day.
I believe that crorruption is the catalyst for most of what is wrong in our world. Have a look through the UN Sustainable Development Goals. Corruption hinders progress on pretty much all of them.
Corruption steals from people. Corruption creates refugee crisis. Corruption perpetuates gender and wealth inequality. Corruption blocks access to health care and essential services.
Fighting corruption isn’t just a job for Governments. Yes, they need to put the systems, policies and measures in place that allow us to speak up, but we all have a part to play.
