The Pacific Anti-Corruption Project
This project between UNDP and USPSA of USP is focused on ‘Strengthening Anticorruption, Transparency and Accountability in Pacific Island Countries’ through its Pacific Anti-Corruption Project by creating more youth leaders by engaging them via intergenerational and interregional dialogues to support and create stronger institutions and mechanisms. These will be building onto existing regional instruments such as the Teieniwa Vision and the 2050 Blue Pacific Strategy.
Through this project, USP SA aims to support institutions, systems, and mechanisms to function more efficiently and effectively to ensure that Pacific Island Countries (PICs) are able to better prevent and tackle corruption and improve implementation of the Agenda 2030 and SDGs, with focus on SDG 16 targets. The Government of the United Kingdom funds the project.
To achieve these goals, one of the key areas of focus is improved citizens’ access to information and strengthened oversight by non-state actors.
The main activities under this Project was focused on Right to Information (RTI) workshop series, creative arts competition, advocacy posters, the Pacific Conference on Governance, Pacific Youth Summit, the Special Pacific Panel in Washington D.C during IACC 2022, the regional leaders high-level dialogue and the Regional Youth Seminar.
