Assistance in Preventing and Combating Corruption

Since 2007, Germany’s GIZ has been working closely with Indonesia’s Corruption Eradication Commission (KPK) to improve analysis and institutional coordination, and to increase sub-national capacity in areas such as forestry, education and health. As preventing corruption is a responsibility across all levels of society, the project has also focused on engaging CSOs.

A key element in the programme has been promoting KPK’s 2017 standards for certifying anti-corruption trainers, and to date 827 anti-corruption trainers have been qualified to support KPK across Indonesia. In December 2019, as part of World Anti-Corruption Day, KPK organised an event for anticorruption agents to meet and discuss the current situation, and to promote the eradication of corruption through education.

Participating in the anti-corruption trainer certification motivated me to continue to educate my students and community about the importance of corruption prevention. The certification gave me important credibility among my students and my peers.
