Strengthening the private sector capacity to prevent corruption and enhance integrity in the Arab Countries

This UNODC project on “Strengthening the private sector capacity to prevent corruption and enhance integrity in the Arab Countries” aims to reduce opportunities for corruption by:

  • strengthening public sector anti- corruption frameworks;
  • strengthening private sector capacity to enhance integrity; 
  • stimulating public-private sector dialogue.

Project implementation will be guided by the United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC) which represents the only legally binding universal anti-corruption instrument and covers many different forms of corruption.

The project will assist six Arab countries (Egypt, Iraq, Libya, United Arab Emirates and two additional countries to be selected during the project implementation) to introduce legislative improvements to combatting corruption in the private sector; improve communication between the public and private sectors by providing a common venue for further interaction, dialogue and knowledge sharing; and provide guidance to companies and Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs) to develop their anti-corruption code of ethics and compliance programmes.
