Online Course: Anti-Corruption in the Context of the 2030 Agenda (18 March to 12 April 2019)


Dear colleagues,

We are pleased to inform you of the first worldwide edition of the online course, Anti-Corruption in the Context of the 2030 Agenda running from 18 March to 12 April 2019. This course has been developed by the United Nations System Staff College (UNSSC) and United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) Bureau for Policy and Programme Support with significant inputs from UNODC, U4, OHCHR, GIZ, Sida, and International Anti-Corruption Academy (IACA). The roll out of this course is financially supported by UNDP and UNODC, making it free of charge to a selective group of participants.

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.

As UNDP Administrator Achim Steiner said, "corruption is a complex challenge that continues to persist in many countries across the world. It has a direct impact on the three dimensions of sustainable development – social, economic and environmental – and affects each of the five pillars of the 2030 agenda: people, planet, prosperity, peace and partnerships.

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 the opportunity to learn about the role that anti-corruption plays in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda. This online course is free of charge and open to UN staff from headquarters, country teams or regional offices, government representatives, development practitioners, as well as members of civil society, private sector, academia and foundations. 

To win the scholarship, register via Deadline for registration is on 15 February 2019.
