Fast Facts - Anti-corruption and Democratic Governance
Corruption undermines human development by diverting public resources to private gain and reducing access to public services. Achieving the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) will largely depend on the quality of governance and level of effectiveness, efficiency, and equity in the generation, allocation and management of resources.
UNDP provides technical and advisory support to national partners. For UNDP the major focus is strengthening preventive capacities to stop leakages of public resources, working together with partners such as the UN Office for Drug Control, UN Economic Commission for Africa, WHO, OECD, World Bank, GTZ, Noraid and civil society organizations.
