UNDP`s the Enhanced Public Sector Transparency and Integrity Project (ETI Project) aims at bringing the regulatory and institutional arrangements for corruption prevention within Ukraine come closer to international standards for transparency and accountability in the public sector and thus help ensure more responsiveness and efficacy from state bodies at national and subnational levels. The project (1) renders assistance to establishment of regulations on issues of conflict of interest, assets declarations, and corruption risk assessment, which spell out mandates and operational procedures for the duty-bearers, (2) contributes to duty-bearers’ capacity development to operationalize adopted frameworks in everyday operations at national level and (3) encourages local oversight of anti-corruption reform implementation.
Since 2015, UNDP organizes yearly Anti-Corruption Schools which bring together civil society activist from all over Ukraine. The AC School is a unique way of cooperation between UNDP and local activist. The AC School 2018 is going to consist of 4-days training where participants get first-hand knowledge how to fight corruption, use newly created tools and instruments like e-declarations, anti-corruption legislation, communications, public information access, the experience of project realization by local and national CSOs etc.
In addition, in 2016 the UNDP Anti-Corruption Lab was organized by ETI Project to build an anti-corruption network of local and national CSOs to exchange experience and cooperate altogether.
This year UNDP has invited other donor organizations – USAID/SACCI, USAID/ENGAGE and the International Renaissance Foundation (IRF) to become organizers of the 4th AC School. Such cooperation is a good possibility to create more synergy between donor organizations in the anti-corruption sphere, exchange good practices and use different innovative approaches. After taking part in the AC School, participants can continue cooperation with UNDP and submit project proposal within the framework of Grant competition “CSO Participation in the implementation of New Legislation aimed at Preventing Corruption”, announced on January 2016. During 2016 – 2017, 27 projects were successfully supported by the ETI Project, which managed the 2nd and 3rd AC Schools.
