Anti-corruption in the context of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development


This online course promotes awareness about the key role anti-corruption plays in the implementation of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The 2030 Agenda was a major breakthrough for the anti-corruption movement, as it emphasizes the importance of transparency, accountability and anti-corruption for sustainable development and makes explicit links between fighting corruption, peace and just and inclusive societies. Despite progress made, corruption is still a pressing challenge. Resources lost through corruption exceed the estimated $10 trillion required to eradicate poverty by 2030. Money lost to corruption is essentially development denied to those most at risk of being left behind.


Target audience:

  • United Nations staff from headquarters, country teams and regional offices;
  • Government representatives;
  • Development practitioners;
  • Members of civil society, academia and foundations.
