DPADM and the United Nations Office on Drug and Crime (UNODC) have agreed to collaborate in the establishment and management of a new category on "Preventing and combating corruption in the public service". This foresighted and important partnership, which aligns DPADM and UNODC's  missions in the area of integrity, accountability and transparency, will  help to collect, document, share and possibly replicate good practices in the area of anti-corruption. It will also encourage higher standards of public conduct and prmote greater awareness of the importance to act against corruption in order to achieve the Millennium Development Goals.  As it is well known, “corruption hurts the poor disproportionately by diverting funds intended for development, undermining a Government’s ability to provide basic services, feeding inequality and injustice and discouraging foreign aid and investment. Corruption is a key element in economic underperformance and a major obstacle to poverty alleviation and development.” (United Nations Convention against Corruption). Thus, promoting integrity and anti-corruption preventive practices is of the utmost importance to ensure that the State’s funds are used to improve people’s quality of life through the delivery of basic services and the establishment of a good business environment. Partnering with the above organizations will ensure that the project is carried out building upon and integrating in a coherent way the knowledge, expertise and experience of the various partners to the advantage of Member States.
