Member Associations from across Oceania joined integrity experts from FIFA and United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) this week for the opening of the latest edition of the FIFA Global Integrity Programme.
In line with FIFA’s overall vision of making football truly global and its ongoing commitment to protecting and promoting the integrity of the game, the FIFA Global Integrity Programme, developed in collaboration with UNODC, aims to improve education and building integrity capacity in all 211 member associations by sharing advanced know-how and resources with integrity officers. It also reflects the UNODC’s objective of supporting governments and sports organisations in their efforts to safeguard sport from corruption and crime.
Involving integrity and anti-corruption experts from FIFA, the UNODC, OFC and other organisations, the opening session for OFC member associations follows on from integrity workshops hosted as part of the FIFA Global Integrity Programme, which has already brought together member associations from the AFC, CAF, CONMEBOL and Concacaf regions.
Designed to share knowledge and discuss best practices with integrity officers from across Oceania, the modules will take place on 6, 13 and 22 April and will focus on key topics, including establishing an integrity initiative, reporting mechanisms, competition protection, media strategy, cooperation between stakeholders, best practices and investigations.
