The primary achievement of the anticorruption work done by CEDO is to provide trainings with practical and build the technical capacity needed to implement the convention. Efforts concentrate on supporting partners address the convention policies and preventive anticorruption frameworks. As the guardian of the United Nations Convention against Corruption, CEDO has resident in depth knowledge on the convention emanating from having negotiated the treaty. According the secretariat of the conference of the states parties to the convention and its established implementation review mechanism, CEDO is mandated to conduct the analysis of the states parties’ self-assessment report and facilitate and support country peer reviews. CEDO is also mandated to complete technical assistance needs identified through self-assessment checklist, analyze gaps in implementing, UNCAC and thus assist the conference in identifying technical assistance priorities and develop responses. CEDO can not only play a lead role in providing technical assistance for the implementation of UNCAC, but can also act as an honest broker responsible for marching those in need of technical assistance with technical assistance provider.

The implementation review, Mechanism providers further an opportunity to review the impact of technical assistance delivered on a country’s compliance with UNCAC to assist whether the assistance has achieved the goals and filled the gaps identified.

RAISE PUBLIC AWARENESS OF ANTICORRUPTION:-Public awareness materials are produced that can be used globally in anticorruption campaigns by CEDO fielded officers, Non governmental Organizations and other civil society Organizations. Special attention is paid to corruption related issues on 9 December every year on the occasion of the International Day against corruption to raise awareness about the problem of corruption. CEDO reaches out to the general public through our website www.envaya.org/CEDO/News and facebook

Zero Corruption.
100% Development.

Corruption is a serious crime that can undermine social and economic development in all societies.

No country, region or community is immune.

This year UNODC and UNDP have developed a joint global campaign, focusing on how corruption hinders efforts to achieve the internationally agreed upon Millennium Development Goals and affects education, health, justice, democracy, prosperity and development.

Statement from Mr Yury Fedotov,
Executive Director of UNODC
on International Anti-Corruption Day

9 December 2012

In our globalised, highly interconnected world, corruption represents one of our greatest challenges. There is no country or territory untouched by this threat, which erodes democratic institutions and undermines the rule of law. UNODC's response to corruption is founded on the United Nations Convention against Corruption that was opened for signature by Member States on 9 December 2003 in Merida, Mexico. It is both a blueprint, as well as our hope for a future without corruption.

With 164 States parties, UNCAC is close to universal adherence. Calls have been made by all major fora, including the UN General Assembly, the G8 and the G20, encouraging countries that have not yet ratified or acceded to the Convention to do so. Today, I strongly urge the international community to maintain this momentum and the remaining 30 Member States of the UN to adopt the Convention as soon as possible. However, adoption is only the first milestone. If we are to be truly successful in the fight against corruption, every State must fully implement the Convention. Anti-corruption words, must be supported by anti-corruption deeds.

To achieve these goals, UNCAC has gone further than any other Convention by creating a peer-review mechanism to achieve its successful implementation. The Review Mechanism is a global and inclusive process without marginalization or rankings.

And the need is great. Our democratic societies are rooted in the promotion of lasting social and economic development; but while corruption exists, there can be no inclusivity, no opportunity, no equality. Bribery accepted is fairness declined. It is crucial, for this reason, that States and their partners undertake every necessary measure to confront and to eliminate corruption.

UNODC is also deeply involved in building the necessary partnerships against corruption. We are leading an educational project to build anti-corruption curricula and we are working with the private sector in accordance with the 10 thPrinciple of the UN Global Compact. This means encouraging the private sector to work in partnership with States and UNODC and invest in the areas of the world that need assistance, thereby contributing towards a stronger anti-corruption regime and competitive, but fair markets for companies to do business.

Corruption also undermines the impartial use of natural resources and the fair distribution of wealth; both within and between countries. To combat this, UNODC supports Member States in the management of natural resources through initiatives such as the pilot project on countering illegal logging in Indonesia.

On International Anti-Corruption Day, I call on everyone, in every country, on every continent, to reject corruption. We need your help to assist the millions of people whose lives are affected by corruption.
