UNODC UNDP Anti-Corruption Campaign 2013
Corruption is a global plague and Governments, the private sector, non-governmental organizations, the media and citizens around the world are joining forces to fight this crime. The United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) are at the forefront of these efforts.
A new global campaign to commemorate International Anti-corruption Day, 9 December, kicked off on 26 November 2013 in Panama under the theme Zero Corruption - 100% Development. The 2013 advocacy campaign was announced by UNODC and the UN Development Programme (UNDP), during a special event at the V Session of the Conference of the States Parties to the United Nations Convention against Corruption.
This year, the agencies jointly organized a competition for young people to design an awareness campaign on the corrosive effects of corruption on development, recognizing the pivotal role of today's youth in driving an agenda for a future built on solid and honest foundations.
