Dear colleagues, On thisInternational Anti-Corruption Day, we recognize the determination of women who are taking remarkable steps to address corruption through conservation programming. Their challenges and contexts are all different, but their stories reinforce a common understanding—only by addressing corruption behind environmental crimes, supply chain threats, and natural resource governance challenges, can we safeguard a future for communities, wildlife, fisheries and forests.
I hope that these stories will inspire others in the conservation community to think and program differently for strengthened results. Are you seeking to build anti-corruption into your conservation efforts, but don’t know where to begin? I encourage you to do two things: first, dive into the resources on the TNRC Knowledge Hub; and second, join the new Countering Environmental Corruption Practitioners Forum that launched this week at the International Anti-Corruption Conference.
This exciting new forum is bridging our communities to work across disciplines to address corruption behind environmental degradation, biodiversity loss, and climate change. Signal your interest here.
