Project Description
The project will provide advice on strengthening state institutions tasked with preventing and combating corruption. Also it will build and develop partner capacity through initial and in-service training and organisational and process advice, as well it will promote learning and exchange with Germany and other European countries. The project activities will focus on raising awareness and strengthening civil society, especially at local level. Also it will support activities in regions and sectors at high risk of corruption.
Specific Objective
- To contribute to implementation of the Association Agreement between the EU and the Republic of Moldova, in particular Articles 16 and 18. Article 16 focuses on preventing and combating organised crime, corruption and other illegal activities. Article 18 targets the fight against money laundering and the financing of terrorism.
- To contribute to national implementation of the 2030 Agenda. As part of the national agenda, the module contributes primarily to implementing Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) 16.4 and 16.5 and to achieving SDGs 16.6, 16.7 and 16.10. It relates to prevention of corruption at all levels of the state, i.e. the effective implementation of the National Integrity and Anticorruption Strategy (NIAS), effective coordination and improved sharing of information between relevant institutions, development of efficient scrutiny of financial transactions, mechanisms to impound and return illegally acquired assets, and strengthening of the technical capacity of the National Integrity Authority (NIA).
- To activate civil society to combat corruption, particularly at local level.
