Launch of the 5th grants scheme to assist CSOs to tackle corruption

Since mid-2012, UNODC’s small grants scheme has assisted a number of African-based civil society organizations (CSOs) across the continent in developing innovative anti-corruption projects to raise awareness on the United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC) and its implementation. With applications now open for the fifth round of funding, the grants scheme has helped CSOs from a range of countries tackle corruption within the private sector, particularly amongst small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs).

Following four fruitful rounds of private sector small grants and 15 successful training sessions for Civil Society Organizations (CSOs) on the UN Convention against Corruption and its review mechanism, UNODC is pleased to invite  CSOs from Africa to apply for a fifth round of small grants which aims to encourage the engagement of civil society with the private sector on anti-corruption matters.

The overall objective of these small grants is to help develop (or complement) innovative projects or ideas for approaching small and medium-sized enterprises in order to promote anti-corruption activities and the UNCAC implementation. The grants, which can amount up to 5,000 USD, will be awarded to the best proposals based on criteria indicated in the application form below.

Deadline: 9 November, 2018
