The “Anti-Corruption for Trust in Lebanon” (ACT) project is a continuation of the project initiation plan (PIP) (March 2019-May 2020). It is building on more than 15 years of support provided by UNDP towards the national anti-corruption agenda, and to maintain the momentum around anti-corruption work culminating with the adoption of the National Anti-Corruption Strategy (NACS) in May 2020 by the Council of Ministers.
The overall objective of the project is to enable the adoption of and progress on the implementation of an integrated and targeted approach to prevent and combat corruption, in line with the National Anti-Corruption Strategy (NACS).
The project directly contributes to reinforcing Lebanon’s ability to implement the United Nations Convention Against Corruption (review), to which Lebanon is a State party since 2009. It also works towards achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Sustainable Development goals (SDGs), which Lebanon endorsed on September 2015, with a focus on SDG 16.
