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.

        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?
