Sport contributes to sustainable development and good governance underpins the integrity of sport. It is essential that both governments and sporting organisations exercise their shared responsibility.
The Commonwealth Secretariat galvanise policy-makers to act to strengthen the governance of sport and reduce the threat of sporting competitions being manipulated through betting or match fixing.
We have worked with the Government of Australia to share practical national policy templates and resources that can be adapted by individual member governments.
We also convene the Commonwealth Advisory Body on Sport (CABOS), which provides advice to governments on responding to sport integrity issues.
A Framework of Policy Recommendations on Integrity in Sport will be presented at the Commonwealth Sports Ministers Meeting in August 2016
