Our Strategic Plan is ambitious. It defines how we will combat corruption within a challenging and changing environment through regional cooperation.

External achievements

1 - Regional Training Programmes

Several regional training programmes have been conducted since inception that resulted in improved skills in asset recovery, crime detection and investigations, whistle blower and witness protection, among other things.

The capacity building activities are conducted in member countries on a rotational basis

2 - Birth of ARIN-EA

EAAACA led to the birth of ARINEA at its 7th AGM in Kigali Rwanda. ARIN-EA’s objective is to provide an informal network in the Eastern Africa region for the exchange of information that will lead to the recovery of assets acquired through crime. Stolen assets are often transferred to foreign jurisdictions, making the process of asset recovery even more complex and time consuming. ARIN-EA also works with other regional networks in asset recovery initiatives which focuses on all proceeds of crime and not just the proceeds of corruption.
