At one of MACN’s very first meetings, the members conducted an exercise of finding common hot spots for corrupt demands. This exercise has served as the platform for MACN’s collective action work. In combination with MACN’s growth and the introduction and the use of MACN’s Incident Reporting mechanism, our geographical heat map has expanded.

Today, MACN has built up useful experience to successfully drive change in countries prone to corruption, and we actively seek external funding to kick off and drive more collective actions in line with MACN’s 2020 strategy.

The outcome of this session will be to build MACN’s geographical priorities for the coming 3-5 years.

This exercise will be the first step of the process. After this session, the MACN Secretariat will conduct further analysis of these countries, e.g. trade lanes, political climate and governance, and foreign governments aid programs.

Instructions for session
  • Members will participate in the regional session they have chosen in the MACN Event app.
  • Each group discussion will focus on ranking the different countries in each region.
  • To guide the discussion and to allow participants to prioritize the countries being discussed, you will be asked to respond to the following questions:

Building the Business Case:
  • Which of the countries do you face most challenges in? Please rate the countries per region as very severe, severe and less severe
  • Looking 3-5 years ahead, do you believe the country will remain a key market for your company? Please rate them as highly relevant, relevant and less relevant

Initial feasibility assessment  
  • Please rate feasibility for success to eliminate and mitigate the challenges: Long term project 3-5 years, mid-term 1-2 years, and “quick win” 12 months

How to prepare for the sessions
  1. Please review relevant countries below and discuss challenges in these countries with colleagues in relevant departments before the meeting.
  2. Severe incidents are defined as cash demands, and/or threats of violence and safety to vessel and crew
  3. If you are not attending the meeting, please participate in the survey on rating these different countries before. This is not required if you attend the meeting.
