The establishment of Timor-Leste’s Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) is a positive indication of the Government’s commitment to strengthen accountability and combat corruption in the country.  UNDP focuses on strengthening the institutional capacity of the ACC’s Department of Education, Campaign and Research and complements the efforts of cooperating partners focusing on capacity building and specialized training programmes for the ACC investigation staff.
