UN Convention against Corruption

UNCAC is the only globally-agreed framework on combating corruption. Learn more about its content and processes, and about related international agreements.

UNCAC sets a comprehensive benchmark for anti-corruption laws, institutions, and actions of ratifying countries. UNCAC commitments can be a valuable basis for national anti-corruption agendas and donor dialogue and assistance, but its range—from anti-corruption agencies to criminalization to asset recovery—also demands priority-setting. The UNCAC review mechanism can shape some priorities, but the specific country context is equally important.

Supporting the Implementation of the United Nations Convention Against Corruption: What Technical Assistance Can Do, Examples from South Africa, Ghana Indonesia and Latin American Countries

This GTZ evaluation looks at 12 technical cooperation projects and programmes in the area of good governance, focusing on administrative reform, decentralisation and rule of law. The aim is to establish to what extent individual projects and programmes are contributing to the implementation UNCAC. The evaluation shows that projects and programmes do, at least indirectly, contribute to the prevention of corruption in line with Article 62. It is however argued that a stronger link with UNCAC needs to be made in the implementation of projects and programmes in order to show more clearly what contributions are being made to the implementation of the Convention.
