Technology to fight corruption
The World Economic Forum’s Partnering Against Corruption Initiative (PACI) launched a digital platform called ‘Technology for Integrity’ on 15 March during its São Paulo meeting. The goal is to tap into new technologies as tools to fight corruption in the countries of the region. Partners include 96 global innovators and organisations such as Transparency International and the Inter-American Development Bank. The initiative intends to rebuild confidence and integrity in Latin America from a global perspective. The platform consists of a database of tools, best practices, and solutions to tackle corruption. The content will be produced both by the public and private sectors. The initiative also includes a laboratory of synergies through which representatives of different stakeholders will be able to meet, identify their specific needs, and contact innovators to offer tailored solutions to fight corruption.
