The UN Pacific Regional Anti-Corruption (UN-PRAC) Project is a joint United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) and United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) initiative, supported by funding from the Australian Government, aimed to support Pacific Island Countries (PICs) to strengthen their national integrity systems.
The UN-PRAC project is now in Phase II set to extend between 2016-2020. The main objective of the project is to help Pacific Island Countries fight corruption by (i) promoting the accession to UNCAC by Niue, Samoa, and Tonga and supporting pacific States Parties to actively participate in the UNCAC review process (ii) supporting PICs to strengthen national anti-corruption legislation and policies, as well as institutional frameworks and capacities to advance their effective implementation of UNCAC and (iii) providing support on the demand side of accountability, mainly through support of stronger engagement of non-government actors in the oversight of corruption, and in design of tools for more transparent service delivery. Fifteen countries and territories in the Pacific are covered by the project, including: The Cook Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Fiji, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Nauru, Niue, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, the territory of Tokelau, Tuvalu, and Vanuatu.
The UN-PRAC project document lays out “Integrating gender and human rights throughout the Project” as one of the implementation principles. The document also states that “Both UNDP and UNODC are committed to mainstreaming gender equality in their programme work, and as such, this Project is also committed to gender equality. In addition, where appropriate, specific activities in support of gender equality in the anti-corruption context will also be considered. A specific focus of the Project will be to improve women’s participation and, where possible, effective leadership throughout the Project activities, as well as improve the active participation of women and girls in discussions and decision-making fora.”
In addition, Article 13 of the UNCAC states that “Each State Party shall take appropriate measures, within its means and in accordance with fundamental principles of its domestic law, to promote the active participation of individuals and groups outside the public sector, such as civil society, non-governmental organizations, and community-based organizations, in the prevention of and the fight against corruption and to raise public awareness regarding the existence, causes and gravity of and the threat posed by corruption.” Partnering with organizations already working towards equalizing inequalities along gender lines would help promote article 13.
Within these objectives, UN-PRAC would like to engage the services of a consultant to map out current anticorruption gender approaches globally and regionally and work with key stakeholders to formulate a gendered anticorruption strategy for the region. The stakeholders for the UN-PRAC project include governments, civil society organizations (CSOs), media agencies, private sector organizations, regional and international organizations.
The consultant would be expected to explore viable local organizations to partner with and produce a plan to implement this partnership for future UN-PRAC activities. The Pacific Women Shaping Pacific Development would be a key starting point as this organization has already worked to do gender mapping in the region. The gender advisors at Pacific Women could identify key issues for women in the region and would be likely to facilitate anti-corruption related projects with a gendered focus. Organizations that work exclusively in one country should also be evaluated to tailor anti-corruption and gender to that specific area. The Transparency International chapters in each country could be contacted initially to evaluate work already being done and their capacity for a future partnership. In addition, the Fiji Women’s Rights Movement focuses on law-based changes to facilitate equality and might be a helpful organization to collaborate with to address corruption in politics that affect women.
