- Advocacy for Reforms: Engage with policymakers, civil society organizations, and international stakeholders to advocate for stronger anti-corruption measures, legislation, and accountability mechanisms.
- Capacity Building: Strengthen the capacity of relevant institutions, including law enforcement agencies, judiciary, and civil society organizations, to detect, investigate, and prosecute corruption cases effectively.
