Preparations for the First Regional Training for Non-Governmental Practitioners on Anti-Corruption Assessments

Arab Region - Monday, March 29, 2010

Preparations are underway to organize a regional training session for non-governmental practitioners on anti-corruption assessments. The session, which will be held in Beirut (Lebanon) on 29-30 March 2010, is designed to contribute to the efforts aimed at empowering Arab non-governmental actors to contribute more effectively to the implementation of the UN Convention against Corruption (UNCAC). It is the first link in a chain of regional activities that will be organized by UNDP’s Programme on Governance in the Arab Region (POGAR) over the next two years, in cooperation with the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) and UNDP’s Oslo Governance Centre (OGC), with a view to supporting the establishment of a regional group of non-governmental experts on anti-corruption assessments, and developing the capacity of its members to become resource persons for UNCAC implementation efforts and related assessments in their own countries. The overall objective of this regional training session is to introduce participants to basic concepts and experiences of anti-corruption assessments. The session will bring together practitioners from various non-governmental sectors in most of the Arab Countries, including civil society organizations concerned with governance, transparency, integrity and development, in addition to private-sector associations, the media and academic and research institutions.
