To ensure that crime prevention and criminal justice is integrated into the wider agenda of the United Nations, the #Doha Declaration was adopted.

To put this into reality, UNODC – with the financial support of #Qatar – have been rolling out a Global Programme to help countries achieve a positive and #sustainable impact on crime prevention, criminal justice, corruption prevention and the rule of law.

To highlight the Global Programme and provide news and updates on the work, a new website was launched yesterday.

"UNODC's niche capability is that we are a diplomatic organisation with significant judicial, prosecution and law enforcement experience. Our ability to access the highest reaches of Government in every country on earth is a vital part of our armoury to prosecute cybercrime. We maintain networks of prosecutors, law enforcers and judges to help you. Many have current, relevant, credible cybercrime experience that compliments existing networks within GEPN, EuroJust and other law enforcement channels."

Read the full interview with Neil Walsh, Chief of UNODC's Global Programme on #Cybercrime, for the Global Prosecutors E-Crime Network - a global network that improves international cooperation among cybercrime prosecutors.
