Corruption undermines progress towards the SDGs by eroding the rule of law. It weakens government institutions and diverts trillions of dollars from development. In the COVID-19 era, corruption threatens effective pandemic response and economic recovery efforts. The crisis tests our trust in public institutions and the demands placed on them. Trust and public integrity urgently needs strengthening to ensure social cohesion and that we build back better. Candidly addressing transparency, accountability and anti-corruption are key to these efforts.

Historically, property rights have benefitted men, relegating women to second class citizenship and depriving them of economic and political power.
