The roundtable aims to address the unique challenges and opportunities in the fight against corruption wrought by the COVID-19 pandemic and the changes we need to make to minimize corruption on the continent.

This year's celebration will be different from previous years; it will be an online event, a reflection of the New Normal

Understand the emerging corruption related risks and opportunities brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic;

Address the challenges in the fight against leakages due to corruption which have been exacerbated by the pandemic;

Share evolving techniques in the fight against corruption in the "new normal; and

Cause better preparedness in addressing such crises in future.
