Celebrating International Anti-Corruption Day - “We all have a stake in fighting corruption!”

Under UN General Assembly Resolution A/RES/58/4, December 9 was designated International Anti-Corruption Day in order to raise awareness of corruption and of the role that the UN Convention against Corruption has in combating and preventing it. Corruption is a severe impediment to economic growth, and a significant challenge for developed, emerging and developing countries. According to the United Nations Development Programme, funds lost to corruption in developing countries are estimated at 10 times the amount of official development assistance provided. No country, region or community is immune from the effects of corruption. For more information on how corruption can affect your daily life and what you can do to tackle the corruption challenge, please click here.
