While 13 African governments have committed to open contracting, there are few sustainable approaches that bring together government and civil society in delivering better public services and goods. This exchange is particularly urgent as recent health emergencies and natural disasters have highlighted corruption risks in relation to government benefits and public procurement. This puts the delivery of basic services for citizens across Africa under further stress just when they needed it most. In this session panelists will share experiences focused on the implementation of open contracting and engaging civil society in contract monitoring; demonstrating how that and systematic policy changes can contribute to attainment of value for money in contracting during emergency situations. Our conversation will include academics, media, and civil society organizations that will highlight recent research and case studies on locally-led and effective solutions in regards to public procurement and anticorruption.
