The Convention on Business Integrity in collaboration with the Maritime Anti-Corruption Network (MACN) and DANIDA cordially invites you to another Maritime focused Webinar themed, “integrating the new SOPs into daily operations at Nigeria’s Sea Ports & Terminals” scheduled to hold on Tuesday, August 18th, 2020.
In 2012, the Maritime Anti-Corruption Network (MACN), a global business network working towards the vision of a maritime industry free of corruption, in collaboration with the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the Technical Unit on Government and Anti-Corruption Reforms (TUGAR) and the Independent Corrupt Practices and Other Related Offences Commission (ICPC) commissioned a Corruption Risk Assessment (CRA) in the Nigerian port sector. The assessment set out to understand the main drivers of corruption in the sector, identify specific measures for addressing such drivers, and catalyze action among public and private sector stakeholders.
The Corruption risk assessment (CRA) report made specific recommendations for action to eliminate corruption in the Nigerian port sector. Amongst the recommendations was a proposal for Ethics Training and Capacity-building programs to strengthen transparency and accountability of port stakeholders.
The CRA also recommended the need to harmonize SOPs of all the Agencies operating at the Ports and terminals in order to reduce infractions and incidences of corrupt practices that occurred at the Ports.
Specifically, the objectives of this MACN Webinar are:
- To integrate the new Standard Operating Procedures (SOPs) into daily operations leading to more predictable (in time and cost) vessel and cargo clearance at the Ports & Terminals.
- To share the result of the findings of the Survey carried out to determine the level of awareness and usage of the SOPs and Grievance Recording Mechanism (GRM)
Confirmed speakers at the Webinar include:
- Mr. Soji Apampa- CEO- The Convention on Business Integrity/ Integrity organisation
- Mr. Vivek Menon- Head of Collective Action and Partnerships (EMEA), Maritime Anti-Corruption Network (MACN)
- Mr. Martin Benderson- Head of Collective Action and Partnerships- Maritime Anti-Corruption Network (MACN)
