UNCAC in a nutshell

This guide provides an introduction for country-level embassy and donor agency staff on what the United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC) can mean for their work. The aim is to raise awareness of UNCAC contents and its potential utilisation. As UNCAC is a fairly new instrument, this guide also indicates areas in need of further exploration as work progresses.
