It then presents PACT's (Programme for Accountability and Transparency) most significant contributions in the fight against corruption since 1997, including: the production of information, resource and advocacy materials, the development of the UNDP corporate position paper on "Fighting Corruption to Improve Governance", the conduct of research and development and innovative initiatives, facilitating regional and global policy dialogue, facilitating national capacity-building in selected pilot countries (with the preparation of national action plans to prevent and control corruption in Mongolia, Yemen, Jordan and Burundi), and the setting up of a set of mission guidelines for undertaking assessments of a country's public financial system. The second part of the document summarises the main activities implemented by UNDP in the fight against corruption, both at regional and at country levels.
