Durée : July 2019 — December 2020

Contexte
Corruption in Afghanistan is an acute driver of insecurity and public mistrust in state institutions, affecting nearly every aspect of daily life for Afghan civilians. The Rule of Law Sector including Security and Justice institutions have large rooms for improvement for their transparency and integrity to reduce level of corruption. Over the past few years, the Government of Afghanistan has advanced several major ant-corruption reforms and reshaped the institutional setting to enable a more efficient fight against corruption. However, there are still needs for support.

Présentation
The Afghanistan Anti-Corruption, Transparency, Integrity and Openness (ACTION) Project is supporting both an institutional (supply) and civilian engagement (demand) sides to increase public trust in and transparency of Afghan Security and Justice institutions. On the government institutions, the project will focus its support to the flagship initiative of the government to combat corruption, namely the Anti-Corruption Justice Center (ACJC) to enhance their capacity to address high-level corruption cases. On the demand side, the project will work with civil society to improve public trust and repair the social contract between Afghan civilians and the state. The ACTION project is implemented under the overall guidance of the Attorney General Office (AGO) and in close partnership with the Anti-Corruption Justice Centre (ACJC), as well as with civil society organisations (CSO), media, grassroots partners and other relevant development partners.

What we achieved so far (as 31 December 2019)
* ACJC’s technical capacity is enhanced through the draft training plans associated in the Final Capacity Needs Assessment Report which was distributed to all relevant partners in December 2019. The translation from English to Dari is under process and will be made available early January 2020 for further dissemination to national counterparts.
* ACJC’s operational capacity is strengthened through delivery of agreed assets and infrastructure from the ACTION project.
* Afghan CSOs’ capacity is enhanced through the Small Grants Mechanism for Improved Transparency and Accountability which was developed as a tool to strengthen the project’s engagement with CSOs. This mechanism is being applied to the project’s small-grant initiative to increase Afghan CSOs’s capacity and to support their activities to ensure transparency of Afghan Security and Justice institutions.
