ٍStrengthening Transparency and Accountability in Priority Sectors in the Arab region

Tunis, Republic of Tunisia, 6/1/2016 - 6/3/2016

Organized by: Ministry of Public Function, Governance and Anti-Corruption in the Republic of Tunisia with the support of the Regional Hub of UNDP and the Siemens Integrity Initiative and in cooperation ACINET

Under the patronage of the Minister of Public Function, Governance and Anti-Corruption in the Republic of Tunisia, the regional workshop on “strengthening transparency and accountability in priority sectors in the Arab region” is convened in Tunis on 1-3 June 2016, with the support of the Regional Hub of the “United Nations Development Programme” (UNDP) and the Siemens Integrity Initiative, and in cooperation with the “Arab Anti-Corruption and Integrity Network’ (ACINET). The event aims to establish a common space for expert stakeholders to exchange views on the best approaches that could be adopted in priority sectors to reduce corruption opportunities therein, drawing on international standards and comparative experiences, while also enabling them to participate in the development of specialized tools that may be applied in Arab countries to strengthen transparency and accountability in selected sectors, especially those that provide basic services to people and generates considerable funds for the State, and thus directly influence sustainable development efforts. Participants include more than sixty experts from the region and beyond, some of which are independent and some of which work within relevant ministries, agencies and organizations in a number of countries. The event is driven by the importance of supporting collective action against corruption and adopting sectoral initiatives in the framework of national anti-corruption strategies, instead of staying limited to broad measures of a generic nature. Sessions will mostly focus on the health, customs and justice sectors, which are among the sector that were selected based on a series of consultations in 2014, while also opening the debate on other sectors in preparation for future action thereon.
