To identify and eradicate this phenomenon, Côte d’Ivoire’s High Authority for Good Governance (HABG), the institution responsible for combating corruption, has launched a project to build the capacity of public sector players.

As part of its bilateral cooperation, the HABG has asked South Korea to support this project. The Korean International Cooperation Agency (KOICA) has set up an anti-corruption capacity-building programme.

The programme is run by the Korea University Research and Business Foundation in Seongnam, South Korea. From 27 May to 8 June 2024, a delegation from Côte d’Ivoire is taking part in this training course entitled “Capacity Building for Public Sector Reforms and Management in Côte d’Ivoire (2023-2025).”

This is the second time that this training course has been held, under the leadership of Mr. Epiphane Zoro Bi Ballo, the current Chairman of the HABG, who initiated the first training course when he was Minister for the Promotion of Good Governance and the Fight against Corruption.

The Ivorian delegation, led by Oumar Doh Diamoutene, Secretary General of the High Authority for Good Governance (HABG), includes some fifteen Ivorian executives who are members of the Advisory Board of the Academy for Good Governance and the Fight against Corruption.

The participants also come from the HABG, the Senate, the National Assembly, the Ecole Nationale d’Administration (ENA), the Universite Felix Houphouet-Boigny, the National Commission of the African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM) and the Pole Penal Economique et Financier.

With a view to strengthening citizen participation in the fight against this scourge, the government introduced a system for the prevention and detection of acts of corruption and related offences known as SPACIA on 13 April 2022. This system enables people to report acts of corruption online.
