  • SHARE:

This Practice Note helps clarify UNDP’s position by building on internal knowledge mapping, as well as reflecting and refocusing UNDP’s anti-corruption priorities within its mandates and with respect to new development in this field. It clarifies that the main rationale for UNDP engagement on anti-corruption is to further its mandates on poverty reduction, realization of the Millennium Development Goals and promoting sustainable development. It provides guidelines in areas such as: (i) developing and implementing long- and short-term anti-corruption strategies, (ii) mainstreaming anti-corruption activities into national programmes on service delivery, (iii) developing the capacity of anti-corruption institutions, (iv) engaging in advocacy and awareness-raising through civil society organizations and the media, (v) developing anti-corruption assessment tools and conducting anti-corruption surveys, (vi) coordinating and harmonizing anti-corruption programmes, and (vii) developing knowledge tools.
[Note: this Practice Note is complemented by the primer “Corruption and Development” which extends the concepts and programming guidelines.]
