This panel discussion presented new TNRC research on the dynamics of corruption in natural resource management and new perspectives on the challenges of integrating effective responses to corruption into the stewardship of environmental resources. Panelists presented insights from research and practice on:

  • The impact of high-value resources and political interest on community-based natural resource management efforts with a case study from Madagascar;
  • The effect of informal networks and norms on environmental management regimes with a case study from Peru; and
  • The challenges and opportunities building common ground across conservation and anti-corruption: terminology, priorities, and alliances.
