Fast-tracking the Implementation of the UN Convention against Corruption (UNCAC)

FAST-TRACKING THE IMPLEMENTATION OF THE UN CONVENTION AGAINST CORRUPTION (UNCAC)

Corruption poses significant threats to countries around the world. It weakens institutions, erodes trust and threatens the economy by undermining fair competition and discouraging investment and trade. Corruption disproportionately affects disadvantaged groups, specifically the poor, preventing social inclusion, promoting inequality and inhibiting prosperity. The international community has recognized that tackling corruption is vital for sustaining economic stability and growth, maintaining the security of society, protecting human rights, reducing poverty, protecting the environment for future generations and addressing serious and organized crime.

The project entitled “Fast-Tracking the Implementation of the United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC)” has enabled the creation of four Regional Platforms across the world to prevent and combat corruption in the South East Asia, Eastern Africa, South America and Mexico as well as in Southern Africa through effective implementation of UNCAC in support of SDG 16.

Overview

The overall objective of the regional platform approach is to fast-track effective implementation of UNCAC.

Each regional platform has identified four thematic areas as regional priorities. Activities are designed to advance countries’ efforts to strengthen anti-corruption measures in the priority areas.
