Corruption & Economic Crime

UNODC’s projects to prevent and counter corruption and economic crime aim to fast-track effective measures in line with implementation of the UN Convention against Corruption (UNCAC), assist governments with advice and capacity building, transfer expertise, strengthen knowledge, and foster innovation, in particular in the area of anti-money laundering and asset recovery.

The EU is a key UNODC partner in the implementation of the UNCAC and, increasingly, in the provision of technical assistance to combat corruption and money-laundering and to strengthen asset recovery in Africa, Asia and the Pacific.

Supporting the Strengthening of a National Asset Forfeiture System in Angola (ARINSA)

Support to the implementation of the second review cycle of the United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC)

Launched in 2021, the project supports Angola to develop an effective system to counter illicit financial flows and thereby increase the revenue and resources available to Angola to fund its own development. The project is embedded within the programmatic context of the Asset Recovery Inter-Agency Network Southern Africa (ARINSA), which is facilitated by UNODC.

Since 2018, the EU has supported the Implementation Review Mechanism of the United Nations Convention against Corruption, a peer review process that assists States parties to effectively implement the Convention.
