Within the Regional Programme for the Arab States to Prevent and Combat Crime, Terrorism and Health Threats and Strengthen Criminal Justice Systems in line with International Human Rights Standards (2016-2021), Sub-Programme III on “Combating Corruption and Financial Crimes”, United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) is implementing the project ‘Action Against Corruption in the MENA region’ (2017-2021), managed by the UNODC Regional Office for the Middle East and North Africa (ROMENA), based in Cairo. The core objectives of the project include corruption prevention, corruption criminalization and law enforcement, as well as Anti-money laundering measures and asset recovery.

Following a high-level mission undertaken in January 2020, ROMENA and the Sudanese Government have identified corruption as a priority area for future cooperation. Within the framework of the referred project, UNODC will implement a number of anti-corruption activities in Sudan in cooperation with the Sudanese Government authorities. The activities will be implemented to strengthen implementation of the United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC), which is the only legally binding universal anti-corruption instrument and covers many different forms of corruption, such as bribery, trading in influence, abuse of functions, and various acts of corruption in the private sector. Sudan ratified the Convention on 5 September 2014. The project activities will support Sudan to undertake legislative and policy efforts to better prevent and combat corruption.

UNODC is committed to support Member States in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, Goals (SDGs) which draws together various elements into a comprehensive and forward- looking framework and explicitly recognizes the interrelationship between sustainable development on the one hand, and the fight against drugs and crime, including corruption and terrorism on the other.
