Anti-Corruption in the Context of the 2030 Agenda
The 2030 Agenda was a major breakthrough for the anti-corruption movement as it emphasises the importance of promoting transparency, accountability and anti-corruption for sustainable development, and makes an explicit link between corruption, peace, and just and inclusive societies.
Yet despite progress made, corruption is still a pressing challenge. Resources lost through corruption exceed the estimated 10 trillion dollars required to eradicate poverty by 2030. Money lost to corruption is essentially development denied to those most at risk of being left behind.
Do not miss this opportunity to learn about the role that anti-corruption plays in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda. Through five weeks of facilitated online learning – combining live webinars with experts, self-paced study modules, and applied learning components such as case studies and interactive exercises – the course introduces participants to the importance of aligning national sustainable development and anti-corruption strategies and plans, and facilitates knowledge and understanding of how to integrate anti-corruption in measurement and monitoring of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
This course has been developed by the UN System Staff College (UNSSC) and the UN Development Programme (UNDP). The UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) provided significant input into the course content. U4 Anti-Corruption Resource Centre, the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida), and the International Anti-corruption Academy (IACA) also contributed to the course content.
