Countering Corruption

Corruption is one of the major issues that inter alia diverts funds away from sustainable and equitable growth, undermines governments' ability to provide basic services, feeds inequality and injustice, contributes to marginalization and radicalization, and discourages foreign investment. UNODC ROEA provides expertise and technical assistance to Member States in line with the provisions of the United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC). The objective is to improve governments' capacity to implement policies and laws and develop institutions to prevent and sanction corruption.
