Linking anti-corruption to sustainable development in Tunisia

Linking anti-corruption to sustainable development in Tunisia

Tunis, Republic of Tunisia, 12/9/2015 - 12/9/2015

Organized by: UNDP-ACIAC

The ACIAC regional project cooperated with UNDP Tunisia to hold a special session on the linkages between anti-corruption and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), namely SDG 16 on “Peace, Justice and Strong Institutions”. The event, which took place on 9 December, came as a part of a national event that was held by the Country Office in partnership with the Government and the National Anti-Corruption Authority in commemoration of the International Anti-Corruption Day. More than 50 participants joined the special session and were introduced to the SDGs and its added value as another international framework that promotes concrete action against corruption. They were enabled to develop a deeper understanding of their country’s commitments under the SDGs, and to identify avenues of collaboration to share and produce more reliable data on the progress of anti-corruption efforts in Tunisia, noting their dissatisfaction with the results achieved so far. At the end, participants formed a network that would act as a participatory platform for monitoring the efforts aimed at implementing SDG 16 and the national anti-corruption strategy, which is expected to be completed in 2016. This would be based on a joint effort to formulate and propose specific indicators at various levels; collect and share existing data; and advocate the production of new data wherever needed.
