Presentation of Transparency International report on Afghan Government’s anti-corruption commitments

PRESS CONFERENCE AND PANEL DISCUSSION IN KABUL

Issued by Transparency International Secretariat



Corruption in Afghanistan is fueling the ongoing war and undermining the effectiveness of billions of dollars of international aid. As the country faces critical threats from insurgents, curbing corruption is vital for the survival of the state.

From Promises to Action: Navigating Afghanistan’s Anti-Corruption Commitments reviews the anti-corruption commitments of the Afghan National Unity Government and highlights those commitments that, if achieved, would most likely lead to meaningful progress in tackling corruption in Afghanistan. It recommends actions both the government and the international donors should take to strengthen Afghanistan’s institutions in order to set the priorities for the next four years and to ensure the next US$15.2 billion of international aid is not wasted on corruption.
