Global Anticorruption Initiative (GAIN) - Highlights of the key achievements in 2014
2014 marked the introduction of UNDP’s Global Anti-Corruption Initiative (GAIN) (2014-2017). GAIN builds on the ongoing initiatives and lessons learned of its predecessor, the Global Thematic Programme on Anti-Corruption for Development Effectiveness (PACDE) (2008-2013). The overarching objective of GAIN is to support programming countries in their efforts to strengthen their systems, institutions and civic engagement mechanisms and increase transparency, accountability and anti-corruption.
2014 has proven to be a fruitful year for GAIN with several achievements having provided: support to over 50 countries, seed funding up to USD 50,000 for country level innovative projects on anti-corruption to more than 20 countries, advisory support through UNDP regional hubs to more than 40 UNDP country offices and programming countries, and support to commentate the International Anti-Corruption Day and launch the 'Break the Corruption Chain' in more than 41 countries. This Annual Report presents results for each of the objectives and outputs of the PACDE result framework, and also highlights key areas where GAIN was instrumental in contributing to the global discourse through its policy and programme support.
