CNVP supports International Anti-Corruption Day

09 Dec, 2021


Corruption affects all areas of society. Preventing corruption unlocks progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals, helps protect our planet, creates jobs, achieves gender equality, and secures wider access to essential services such as healthcare and education.

The International Anti-corruption Day is observed globally on December 9 to raise awareness of corruption and of the role of the convention in combating and preventing it.

International Anti-corruption day 2021's theme is “Your right, your role: say no to corruption.”

The rights and responsibility of every individual stakeholder in tackling corruption must be highlighted.

CNVP maintains a strict zero-tolerance policy for cases of theft, fraud, and misuse of resources.

CNVP through its projects aims to achieve good governance in the forestry sector and combat forest crime and corruption, by increasing transparency and networking in the target countries.

To reach the goal of minimizing corruption, CNVP cooperates with national institutions and NGOs working in the environmental sector, as well as organizations dealing with transparency issues.

In the past years, CNVP was implementing a project funded by the Norwegian Ministry of Foreign Affairs on regional action for combating forest crime and corruption.
