75 Workdays (over a period of 15 months)

 

 

1) GENERAL BACKGROUND

 

 

Corruption remains a significant obstacle to development globally and throughout Southeast Asia and the Pacific (SEAP) region. Corruption is cross-cutting numerous illegal activities, from the process of harvesting and manufacturing illegal wood-based products, migrant smuggling and human trafficking to terrorism financing.  Corruption of public officials is perceived as an enabler of serious and organized crimes that are undermining countries’ abilities to deliver in relation to the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.  

The United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC) provides a comprehensive framework to strengthen anti-corruption frameworks in the region.  As all SEAP countries, including 14 Pacific Island countries (Papua New Guinea, Cook Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Fiji, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Nauru, Niue, Palau, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu) have ratified this universal and the only globally binding treaty, which includes the mechanism for the review of implementation of UNCAC (UNCAC Implementation Review Mechanism). States parties are all currently undergoing the second review cycle, which will, in the coming years, provide reports on their implementation of the Convention to a wider range of preventive measures and recovery of assets.

The outcome of the UNCAC Implementation Review Mechanism provides a solid basis for formulating anti-corruption technical assistance programmes. The UNCAC review process helps countries to identify gaps in anti-corruption policies and frameworks, as well as technical assistance needs. UNODC provides technical support to countries so that they can translate the recommendations into effective legal and policy frameworks and sustainable anti-corruption strategies.

Effective anti-corruption efforts require a whole-of-government and society approach, including different sectors and branches of the government, civil society groups and the private sector.  Public engagement often makes a significant difference. Ongoing support to developing national and regional capacities to prevent and effectively address corruption remains an important priority for UNODC.

UNODC works with Member States to enhance the capacities of their national anti-corruption bodies through the provision of technical assistance as well as the organization of training programmes. In addition, in order to facilitate the coordination of international anti-corruption efforts and peer-to-peer technical assistance, UNODC provides a framework for regional and bilateral support. 

Support is offered to:

* Strengthen anti-corruption policies, legislation and strategies;

* Strengthen institutional frameworks and capacities for control of corruption;

* Development of regional anti-corruption forums, networks and institutions;

* Enhanced capacity of the private sector, civil society groups, academia and the media to promote and implement anti-corruption strategies.

UNODC’s ROSEAP Regional Programme, Sub-Component 2 on Anti-Corruption and Global Anti-Corruption Programme and Global Anti-Corruption Programme have been designed to provide a comprehensive technical assistance to UNCAC States Parties, offering the specialized expertise, knowledge tools and sharing of experience and good practice examples in preventing and fighting corruption, enhancing the international cooperation and recovery of assets. Activities are aimed at assisting national authorities, in public, private and civil sectors, and conducting training and workshops events at national, regional and international levels.

UNODC’s anti-corruption efforts in the SEAP region focus on supporting countries to meet the requirements of UNCAC by providing technical assistance and facilitating regional exchanges to translate the provisions of the Convention into effective legal frameworks, policies and practices and to build national bodies of highly skilled anti-corruption practitioners that will allow States to be well-equipped to prevent and combat corruption.
