Voluntary UNCAC Provisions
France will work with other countries, civil society, and international organisations to accelerate implementation of the voluntary provisions of the UN Convention against Corruption.
*commitment is not specific or/and not measurable
This commitment is a general statement of intent to accelerate implementation of the voluntary provisions of the UN Convention against Corruption (UNCAC). It also partly refers to actions to be taken by a third party, such as another country. The voluntary provisions touch on a variety of policy areas. Therefore this commitment cannot be considered specific.
The commitment could be narrowed down by specifying what voluntary UNCAC provisions France specifically aims to accelerate. For example, in 2021, the French parliament voted for the law on “solidarity development and the fight against global inequalities”, complying with UNCAC article 57, “Return and disposal of assets”. In August 2021, France initiated the restitution of ill-gotten assets in foreign countries.

This commitment is not measurable, because it does not contain any measurable actions. It is unclear how France wants to “work with other countries, civil society and international organisations to accelerate implementation of the voluntary provisions of the UN Convention against Corruption”.
