The PNG Anti-Corruption Project is working with young people, to build their awareness of corruption, why it must be addressed, and to engage youth in national and local anti-corruption efforts.

Funded by the European Union, the PNG Anti-Corruption Project is implemented jointly by the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC).

UNDP is specifically working with youth, critical to long term efforts to address corruption in a new generation of Papua New Guineans rejecting corruption as an acceptable norm.

Together with partners from Papua New Guinea, UNDP is planning to work with youth in Port Moresby, and in provinces, to engage young people in anti-corruption work through innovative strategies designed to encourage enthusiasm and creativity.
