Background:

UNDP’s SARL (Strengthening Accountability and Rule of Law) Project is helping to strengthen institutional frameworks and capacities for good governance in Myanmar, building on initiatives of all three branches of government to promote transparency and accountability, while recognizing the prevalence of corruption, lack of parliamentary oversight, and low adherence to principles of administrative justice and rule of law. Concretely, SARL is supporting the Myanmar Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) to lead a national effort to tackle corruption and to promote transparency and accountability. In November 2017, a new 12-member Anti-Corruption Commission (ACC) was appointed under the leadership of U Aung Kyi, reconfirming once again the importance and priority the Government of Myanmar is allocating to strengthening transparency and accountability in public institutions. The ACC’s ‘Strategic Action Plan’ highlights the importance of prevention as part of the Commission’s mandate. Under this prevention mandate, the ACC also seeks to increase awareness across all people in Myanmar on corruption and on the necessity to tackle this problem. To do so, UNDP will support the ACC in ruling out a nation-wide awareness-raising multimedia campaign with the following objectives: – Raise national awareness on corruption basics, the impact of corruption, how to react in situations of corruption, and on how to participate in the corruption prevention movement – Reach all segments of people in Myanmar, in all States and Regions – Leverage the impact of the media campaign through tailor-made content for specific audience groups, such as businesses, civil servants, and civil society – Support a public movement against corruption through an innovative and participatory social media campaign Following a competitive process, a media company has been engaged for overall delivery of the AC media campaign, and has developed a campaign strategy which has been approved by the ACC. The services of a media production company are now sought to produce the main media elements of the media campaign.
