The United Nations Pacific Regional Anti-Corruption Project is a joint initiative of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime and the United Nations Development Programme, a unique partnership to prevent and fight corruption in 14 Pacific Island countries and the territory of Tokelau.
UN-PRAC aims to strengthen PICs’ national integrity systems. This is to promote ‘clean’ governments and create an enabling environment to increase trade, business, investment and sustainable development in the Pacific.
