This successful cooperation initiated & implemented in the first and second phases of the South Programme will continue under South Programme III which includes both national and regional level activities.

The SNAC 3 Project aims to promote the establishment of anti-corruption networks among the countries of the MENA region as well as the exchange of good practices. It will also include a sub-regional component covering joint activities between Jordan and Palestine*, aiming to support the advancement of regional dialogue.
