International Anti-Corruption Day
International Anti-Corruption Day 2015
Cooperation for Peace and Development (CPD) through its Corruption Free Afghanistan’s initiative has been campaigning on anti-corruption for years. This year, we continued our partnership with UNDP and partnered to UNODC/UNDP 2015 anti-corruption communication campaign (Break the Corruption Chains) to support a positive and pro-active stance against corruption.

International Anti-Corruption Day 2014
Since 2008, Transparency International has consistently placed Afghanistan in the bottom five in the Corruption Perception Index (CPI). Although Afghanistan has been classified as one of the most corrupt nations in the world for many years now, the Afghan government has not done enough to counter corruption and increase the government’s legitimacy. Corruption is a massive problem in Afghanistan that seriously threatens the stability of the country and has contributed to the economic slowdown and low levels of foreign investments. CPD joined the UNDP and UNODC for expansion of the global campaign “Break The Corruption Chain” to Afghanistan. Read more referring to CPD’s resolution issued on 9 December 2014 here.
A massive social media campaign was also organized from 1 to 9 December 2014, during which anti-corruption messages and e-posters were distributed for awareness raising and advocacy purposes to wide spectrum of audience. Creating this webpage was also part of the campaign.
