General description of the CSO work in governance and anti-corruption area

With the support of the UK FCO, and in partnership with the UNDP, UNODC, UNGC and national-level partners, we provide a regular platform for regional knowledge-sharing, peer learning and partnership building. We established a Regional Working Group on Business Integrity in ASEAN to introduce and promote collective action initiatives on anti-corruption in ASEAN. We also launched an “Integrity Has No Borders” campaign and regional integrity pledge to create an enabling environment and solidify commitment towards anti-corruption. Our target beneficiaries are businesses, and we reach out to them through our network members and various national and regional forums and workshops.

Specific description of the CSO work in connection with the UNCAC

Yes, through the Regional Working Group on Business Integrity and Integrity Has No Borders campaign, we conduct joint advocacy activities in relation to anti-corruption. UNCAC and UK Bribery Act are some of the international standards for anti-corruption that we promote and comply with. In line with the UNCAC, we engage with private sector to assist them in their fight against corruption. As an ASEAN accredited entity, we also act as a bridge in the public-private sector discussion in anti-corruption.
