Addressing corruption

UNODC implements technical assistance in the form of an Anti-Corruption Mentor programme to support countries in developing strategies and building their capacity to successfully implement the United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC). The mentors are anti-corruption experts who are based in government institutions to provide policy and technical advice and day-to-day implementation support. The mentors provide technical support to establish anti-corruption institutions, identify good practices, provide training in investigation and prosecution of corruption cases, advise on asset recovery and support the development of anti-corruption policies. One UNODC Anti-Corruption Mentor was posted in Tajikistan to provide advisory services and technical expertise to the Tajik Agency on State Financial Control and Fight against Corruption and another is based in Kyrgyzstan in the General Prosecutor's Office.
