Implementation of the Anti-Corruption Action Plan

 

By endorsing the Anti-Corruption Action Plan for Asia-Pacific, the Initiative's member countries have committed to undertake meaningful reform to bolster their safeguards against corruption. Under the Action Plan's implementation mechanism, countries have committed to "endeavor, in consultation with the Secretariat of the Initiative, to identify priority reform areas which would fall under any of the three pillars, and aim to implement these in a workable timeframe."

Reforms under this mechanisms are conducted in implementation cycles. At the beginning of each implementation cycle, each country identifies up to three priorities for reform and develops specific reform projects to tackle the identified weaknesses. The implementing projects are discussed during Steering Group meetings to exchange experience with partners that have implemented similar reforms in the past or conduct reforms in linked areas. At the end of each implementation cycle, the countries present the achievements and difficulties that were encountered in the implementation of the projects to provide feedback to the members of the Initiative and to share the experience gained in the implementation of the projects.
