Corruption has been repeatedly recognized as a major obstacle for the continued stability and socio-economic development of the Republic of Tajikistan by the country itself and by the international community. Over recent years, the Government of the Republic of Tajikistan (GoT) has made efforts to address the issue of corruption. For instance, signing UNCAC in 2006 and ratifying it in 2008 and joining the OECD-led peer review of the Anti-Corruption Network Istanbul Action Plan. It has developed two subsequent Strategies in the Fight Against Corruption in the Republic of Tajikistan, 2008 to 2012 and 2013 to 2020, and established various state bodies and departments with an anti-corruption portfolio, with the Agency for State Financial Control and Fight Against Corruption (AC Agency) nominated as the lead specialized law-enforcement agency responsible for preventing, detecting and initiating the investigation of corruption offenses, and coordinating anti-corruption initiatives between the government agencies. Further capacity-building and implementation of the applicable best practices, especially in the area of ensuring the public support for the anti-corruption activity, are however still needed.
In 2019, the Good Governance Unit supported the constitution of the Coalition of Civil Society of Tajikistan on Transparency and Anti-Corruption. The Unit will provide capacity building to the members of the Coalition, with the objective of enhancing their knowledge on anti-corruption and envisioning that in the future they will build capacity to NGOs in the region. The Unit will also support the daily development of the Coalition by covering the costs of having a Chairperson and a Secretary that will coordinate the activities.
Support the daily operations and activities of the Coalition.
