UNODC: Small grants for African CSOs to tackle corruption

UNODC invites CSOs from Africa to apply for small grants which aim to encourage the engagement of civil society with the private sector on anti-corruption matters.

The overall objective of these small grants is to help develop (or complement) innovative projects or ideas for approaching small and medium-sized enterprises to promote anti-corruption activities and the UNCAC implementation. The grants, which can amount up to $5,000 USD, will be awarded to the best proposals based on criteria indicated in the application form below.

Applications are now open for the current round of small grants for African-based CSOs. The deadline is 9 November 2018. More information is available from UNODC’s Civil Society team via email hidden; JavaScript is required.

» View further details and application documents on the UNODC website.

United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC)

With the start-up of the UNCAC review mechanism in 2010 came an important new channel for civil society engagement in anti-corruption efforts. To facilitate contributions by CSOs to the review process, UNODC, the UNCAC Coalition and Transparency International have provided a number of trainings and workshops, including one in September 2016 with a focus on the CSOs in Africa.

In order to promote collaboration between CSOs and facilitate the identification of partners, the UNCAC Coalition Africa Anti-Corruption Platform, supported by TI Kenya, provides the possibility to:

  • explore by country the profiles and contact details of a number of CSOs in the sub-region doing UNCAC-related work, including CSOs that attended trainings and multi-stakeholder workshops on UNCAC and its Review Mechanism,
  • learn from other CSOs in the sub-region about their involvement in UNCAC implementation and its Review Mechanism, including their contributions, obstacles they encountered, lessons learned and best practices they came up with, and
  • get updates on the status of the reviews in their countries and the contribution of CSOs to those reviews.

      1. Dear Prof. Naobeb,

        Thank you very much for sharing the news about the forum in Namibia!
        Would you be able to already share a bit more information about what anti-corruption issues you are considering to focus the forum on, if you would be able to cover travel costs of participants from the region, and how Anti-Corruption CSOs and experts could best contact you if they would be interested in participating, especially via email?

        If you could either post here and/or send an email to email hidden; JavaScript is required with further information, I would be happy to also forward your message to the UNCAC Coalition email list.

        Regards from Vienna,
        Mathias Huter
