UNODC Google+ House Rules
UNODC is a global leader
in the fight against illicit drugs and international crime. Established
in 1997 through a merger between the United Nations Drug Control
Programme and the Centre for International Crime Prevention, UNODC
operates in all regions of the world through an extensive network of
field offices. UNODC relies on voluntary contributions, mainly from Governments, for 90 per cent of its budget.
UNODC is mandated to assist Member States in their struggle against
illicit drugs, crime and terrorism. In the Millennium Declaration,
Member States also resolved to intensify efforts to fight transnational
crime in all its dimensions, to redouble the efforts to implement the
commitment to counter the world drug problem and to take concerted
action against international terrorism.
The three pillars of the UNODC work programme are:
* Field-based technical cooperation projects to enhance the
capacity of Member States to counteract illicit drugs, crime and
* Research and analytical work to increase knowledge
and understanding of drugs and crime issues and expand the evidence-base
for policy and operational decisions; and
* Normative work to
assist States in the ratification and implementation of the
international treaties, the development of domestic legislation on
drugs, crime and terrorism, and the provision of secretariat and
substantive services to the treaty-based and governing bodies.
In pursuing its objectives, UNODC will make every effort to integrate
and mainstream the gender perspective, particularly in its projects for
prevention and the provision of alternative livelihoods, as well as
those against human trafficking.
