On measuring integrity with Dr Sanjeev Narrainen, Green Climate Fund

Dr Sanjeev Narrainen, Integrity and Compliance Manager at the Green Climate Fund, gives us his musings on measuring integrity at our 'think-in' on the topic in Vienna in Autumn 2022.

Show notes

Background The Global Programme for Measuring Corruption (‘GPMC’) recently held a 'think-in' at their HQ in the International Anti-Corruption Academy, in Vienna, to examine how measuring a different concept - integrity - could help change the narrative and yield better outcomes in the anti-corruption field.

The GPMC assembled a learned, thoughtful and talkative team of practitioners and academics from a diverse range of disciplines and continents, to listen, debate and learn about the topic over four days.

In this conversation with Dr Sanjeev Narrainen, the Integrity and Compliance Manager at the Green Climate Fund, he talks about his interest in the anti-corruption field, the corruption risks in grant-giving, and how measuring integrity could offer a fresh approach to mitigating these risks.
