Emerging technologies such as artificial intelligence, block chain, and the Internet of Things (IoT), among others, offer the promise to help solve some of the world’s most complex challenges, from reducing inequalities, mitigating fossil fuel emissions, or increasing access to water and related services. Such technologies are also providing new opportunities and means to identify integrity and corruption-related risks across industries and activities. As a result, formerly difficult-to-detect cases of corruption or integrity failures are being uncovered, and new processes that aim to avoid previously corruption-prone procedures have arisen.
This Integrity Talk will explore the role that emerging technologies can play to promote integrity and identify corruption risks in the water and sanitation sectors and in climate change finance. Participants will gain a better understanding of how data-driven approaches are strengthening transparency, accountability, and anti-corruption. The discussion will also explore some of the challenges, limitations, and ethical considerations linked to applying new digital technologies in the water sector and beyond.
