UNDP Global Mission Statement:
UNDP is the UN’s global development network, an organization advocating for change and connecting countries to knowledge, experience and resources to help people build a better life. We are on the ground in 166 countries, working with national counterparts on their own solutions to global and national development challenges.
The 14th Malaysian General Election in May 2018 marked a significant chapter in the history of the nation and the new government has pledged its strong commitment towards improving governance at all levels, elevating integrity and accountability, and freeing Malaysia of corruption. The National Centre for Governance, Integrity and Anti-Corruption (GIACC) was established in June 2018 with the responsibilities of planning, formulating strategies and evaluating polices in ensuring all government affairs are done based on good governance, integrity and zero-tolerance towards corruption, and a Special Cabinet Committee on Anti-Corruption (Jawatankuasa Khas Kabinet mengenai Anti-Rasuah) (JKKMAR) was established to review issues and to decide on policies and strategic direction of governance, integrity and anti-corruption efforts.
In October 2018, the government’s mid-term review of the 11th Malaysia Plan (11MP) outlined revised policy directions in line with PH’s reform agenda with a strong emphasis on governance, and Pillar 1 of the 11MP is now focused on “Reforming governance towards greater transparency and enhancing efficiency of public service,” with the priority area of improving governance at all levels, through the strategy of strengthening check and balance mechanisms. In January 2019, the government launched the National Anti-Corruption Plan 2019-2023 (NACP) with the aim of instilling good governance initiatives in its efforts to fight corruption.
Preventing corruption requires an effort from all members of society at large, and Article 13 of the UNCAC recognizes and provides a role for Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) in combating corruption by calling on governments to increase transparency, improve public access to information and to promote public participation in the government decision-making process. Given the important watchdog role of civil society, there is a need to strengthen the capacity of anti-corruption CSOs in Malaysia to support government accountability and transparency in various sectors, and in particular, to strengthen alliances between CSOs to mobilize joint action, coordinate anti-corruption initiatives and harness collective impact.
In this context, UNDP Malaysia is working with CSO partners in Malaysia to:
1. Strengthen the capacity of subnational/state level anti-corruption CSOs
While there are several established CSOs currently engaging in anti-corruption work on the national front, there are fewer CSOs working on anti-corruption at the state or local level, and the few that exist are usually not formalized and/or lack resources or capacity to carry out their activities. The project will identify and build the capacity of anti-corruption CSOs within two states – Penang and Johor. Two workshops will be organized with CSOs in these states (Penang in August 2019, Johor in October 2019) to bring state level players together, generate awareness on federal level planning and activities on anti-corruption, and to provide expert training and knowledge sessions on strengthening CSO organizational capacity and conducting effective anti-corruption work at the state and local level.
2. Strengthen the coalition of anti-corruption CSOs in Malaysia
The project will support anti-corruption CSOs in strengthening their coalition, building the coalition’s organizational capacity as a network, and in providing administrative, planning, coordination and secretarial support necessary for developing the coalition’s work moving forward. A multi-stakeholder/CSOs workshop will be organized in September 2019 to bring all relevant anti-corruption stakeholders together (national and subnational), generate awareness on the current developments in the anti-corruption landscape in Malaysia and the role of CSOs, foster collaborations between CSOs, and bring visibility to CSOs and their activities.
UNDP Malaysia is now seeking a Project Coordinator who will be responsible for the overall management and implementation of the project and who will work closely with CSO partners to support the achievement of the project’s objectives.
