Joint Statement By International Development Partners In Nepal On The Occasion Of The International Day of Anti-Corruption
PDF File Size: 353 KB | Download   
As the world marks the International Anti-Corruption Day on 9 December, Nepal’s Development Partners would like to encourage the Government of Nepal to continue addressing corruption and building a culture of integrity. Nepal has made significant strides towards aligning its agenda to international corruption-reduction standards such as signing the Convention against Corruption (UNCAC) in 2003, which was ratified in 2011. Nepal has since undergone its first review of the Convention’s chapters criminalization, law enforcement, and international cooperation. We look forward to engaging with the Government of Nepal as well as with the civil society and other relevant stakeholders for addressing the gaps highlighted by the review. Corruption and illicit financial flows present a major threat to Nepal’s economic development, good governance, national stability, business climate, and its achievement of the Sustainable Development Goals “(SDGs)”. A recent study by Global Financial Integrity and UNDP estimates that around US$ 9 billion have been diverted because of illicit financial flows from 2002 to 2011. These are resources that could, and should, have been used for social and economic development of Nepal.
