On the 16th of March 2022, CIFAL Doha was officially inaugurated by the head of the CIFAL Global Network Mr. Alex Mejia and His Excellency Dr. Ali Bin Fetais Al Marri, Chairman of the Board of Trustees of the Rule of Law and Anti-Corruption Center. Mr Mejia presented H.E. Dr. Al Marri with a United Nations flag to commemorate this event. CIFAL Doha will represent the United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) and will contribute to the advancement of the United Nations 2030 Agenda. The center will also specialize in anticorruption and Sustainable Development.

CIFAL Doha is joining as the 23rd center in the CIFAL Global Network, whose mission is to strengthen the capacity of government officials and civil society leaders, empowering them to advance sustainable development. The network is comprised of International Training Centers for Authorities and Leaders located across Asia, Oceania, Africa, Europe, the Americas, and the Caribbean, thus ensuring a global outreach. The CIFAL Global Network is coordinated by UNITAR’s Social Development Program. UNITAR provides innovative learning solutions to individuals, organizations, and institutions to enhance global decision-making and support country-level action for shaping a better future.

The Rule of Law and Anti-Corruption Centre (ROLACC) was inaugurated in 2011 in order to promote mutual cooperation and partnership building both locally and regionally, with an international mandate to spread awareness and knowledge of the policies and tools necessary to prevent and combat corruption. The Center promotes the permanent exchange of experience and expertise in the region through strategic partnerships with the relevant bodies of the United Nations, particularly the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime and the United Nations Institute of Training and Research.

UNITAR wishes to express its appreciation to H.E. Dr. Al Marri, member of UNITAR’s Board of Trustees, and ROLACC for its long and continuous support to the training in anticorruption, from which over two thousand five hundred participants from 27 countries have benefited, and its role as secretariat of the Sheikh Tamim Bin Hamad Al Thani International Anti-Corruption Excellence Award.
