The OSCE within its second dimension on environmental and economic issues assists the governments of participating States in strengthening their national anti-corruption practices, advising on improving the relevant institutional framework and building up national capacities. The OSCE participating States have recognized that “corruption represents one of the major impediments to the prosperity and sustainable development of the participating States that undermines their stability and security and threatens the OSCE’s shared values” (see Ministerial Council Decision No. 11/04). In line with the OSCE documents, specifically Ministerial Council Decision No. 6/20 and Ministerial Council Declaration No. 3/18, the role of women and youth is of vital importance for achieving results in combating corruption. On the basis of its mandate, the OSCE Programme Office in Dushanbe (POiD) supports all efforts aimed at decreasing the risks emanating from corruption and further strengthening capacities to effectively combat corruption at all levels.

Corruption is still a major challenge for Tajikistan, recognized by the National Development Strategy of Tajikistan until 2030. In September 2021, Tajikistan adopted the National Anti-Corruption Strategy 2021-2030 and the Action Plan for the implementation of the Strategy for the period 2021-2025. The main goals and objectives of the implementation of the National Anti-Corruption Strategy are to increase the anti-corruption awareness of the population and create an atmosphere of intolerance to corruption, eliminate the causes and conditions conducive to corruption, and in general reduce the intensity of corruption. 

The Good Governance Unit, which is part of the Economic and Environmental Department, supports the Tajik Government and civil society in implementing the country’s National Anti-Corruption Strategy 2021-20230 and anti-money laundering activities, and in developing corporate governance at state-owned enterprises in line with international standards.. For this purpose, the Unit is calling for experts to hire as National Consultants and expand the roster of experts.
