Promoting Collective Action through UN Global Compact Local Networks project

This project aims to establish a high-impact anti-corruption Collective Action platform in five countries – Brazil, Egypt, India, Nigeria, and South Africa. By facilitating ongoing dialogue between the private and public sector, this project will provide a wide variety of stakeholders in these five countries with an opportunity to explore how specific Collective Action initiatives can create incentives for ethical business performance, and to discuss areas for further improvement.

In so doing, the project aims to scale up existing anti-corruption efforts in the target countries, and provide participants with knowledge, skills, strategies and resources to promote ethical practices and transparency in business operations, within each country, and in international cross-sectoral relations.

The project will emphasise the role of local actors in each of the target countries, engaging and building the capacity of local stakeholders who are faced with corruption in their routine transactions and business relationships.


  • Through the entire project period, GCO extensively supported the organisation in various events and trainings by its local networks e.g. the Africa Sustainable CEO Business Roundtable Forum in Nigeria. The support ranged from providing substantive feedback to the program agenda, inviting participants, using the Global Compact networks and outreaching to ensure multi-stakeholder participation in the events. All of this ensured a greater alignment of activities and spreading of know-how between the chapters.
  • An exchange platform for key stakeholders was established to learn and to further engage in anti-corruption Collective Action as well as to share experiences, learnings and good practices on local and global level.
