For an effective implementation of UNCAC in support of SDG Goal 16

Insecurity and injustice are a daily fact of life for a large proportion of people worldwide, especially the poor. There is strong evidence and wide consensus that this environment provides a fertile ground  for corruption to thrive. It is also documented that sustainable development cannot flourish under these circumstances. The workshop aims to show-case good practices in promoting Goal 16 of the Sustainable Development Goals. Related to its anti-corruption mandate, UNODC has been partnering with the UNCAC Coalition to effectively promote the implementation of UNCAC and its review mechanism and to provide civil society a constructive role in participating in this process. The objective of the workshop will be to look at how the best practices presented can be replicated especially in view of the review of chapter II of the UNCAC on Prevention in the second cycle.
