UNDP’s Anti-Corruption for Peaceful and Inclusive Societies (ACPIS) global project
Despite the challenging global and regional contexts for tackling corruption, there was an important global agreement in 2015. The 2030 Development Agenda, which comprises a set of ambitious Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and targets that build on the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs), was adopted on 25 September 2015 by 193 Member States. The 2030 Agenda was a major breakthrough for the anti-corruption movement because it capitalizes on the importance of promoting transparency, accountability and anti-corruption, and makes an explicit link between corruption, peace and just and inclusive societies. SDG 16 includes key anti-corruption targets needed to build peaceful, just and inclusive societies, and accelerate the achievement of all the SDGs, such as goals related to poverty eradication, reducing inequalities, improving education, health, water and sanitation, and infrastructure, and fostering safe and resilient cities.
UNDP’s Anti-Corruption for Peaceful and Inclusive Societies (ACPIS) global project is UNDP’s main vehicle for policy and programming support on anti-corruption. ACPIS provides a lead role in strengthening UNDP’s global, regional and national advocacy strategies, mainstreaming anti-corruption norms and standards in UN/UNDP programming processes, continuing global partnership, knowledge management, policy dialogue and analysis as well as leadership on the emerging issues of anti-corruption. In addition to producing knowledge products on relevant anti-corruption topics, UNDP also coordinates the interagency anti-corruption web-portal “www.anti-corruption.org”, which provides information by various thematic areas and also online courses on anti-corruption.
With this background, UNDP’s ACPIS global project housed in UNDP’s Global Policy Center for Technology, Innovation and Sustainable Development is looking to hire an intern who will be primarily responsible for providing web development and web design support to maintain and further improve the UN inter-agency anti-corruption web-portal (www.anti-corruption.org), which is managed by UNDP. The web development support intern will be closely working with the ACPIS Knowledge Management and Research Analyst who is responsible for the content management of the web-portal.
