INTERNSHIP OFFICE BACKGROUND:
The overall goal of the Project on Preventing and Countering Corruption in Papua New Guinea funded by the EU and implemented by UNDP and UNODC (the ‘PNG Anti-Corruption Project’) is to support the Government, key national institutions, civil society and communities to strengthen their commitment and capacities to address corruption in line with the UNCAC, in order to more effectively progress the achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals for the benefit of all Papua New Guineans.
UNDP Papua New Guinea is responsible for implementation of Outcome 1 and Outcome 4 of the PNG Anti-Corruption Project. Outcome 1 aims to provide holistic support to the implementation of the National Anti-Corruption Strategy Plan of Action (NACPA), including by supporting the development of a monitoring and oversight plan, assisting with critical anti-corruption law reforms and working with core government partners to pilot risk assessments that can be used as the basis for sector or geographic specific risk mitigation plans which will feed back into implementation of the NACPA. The Outcome 4 supports the Interim Independent Anti-Corruption Commission’s awareness and education related activities and anti-corruption efforts of non-state actors, such as Civil Society Organizations, youth, private sector and media.
