The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime

The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) undertakes efforts to counteract drugs, crime and terrorism by promoting health, justice and security. It adopts an integrated approach in dealing with drugs, crime and terrorism. It also promotes regional security and cooperation by mainstreaming criminal justice into peacekeeping and peace-building operations. The PM of Afghanistan engages with UNODC in various areas, such as crime, terrorism, strengthening of law enforcements, human trafficking, yet the main focus area represents the fight against illicit drugs. Afghanistan has benefited from legal and technical assistance to prevent terrorism, to combat international crime and human trafficking. The UNODC Country Programme on Afghanistan represents a large-scale, long-term effort in tackling the illicit drugs problem in Afghanistan by seeking to eradicate illicit crops and create alternative sustainable livelihoods.

The United Nations International Development Organization

The United Nations International Development Organization is a specialized agency of the UN that promotes industrial development for poverty reduction, inclusive globalization and environmental sustainability. The Organization has two core functions: firstly, to act as a global forum and generate and disseminate industry-related, secondly, to provide technical support and implementation projects. Afghanistan became a member of UNIDO in 1985 and since then it has benefited from global expertise and experience to address complex development challenges. The Afghan PM regularly attends meetings at the UNIDO headquarters and actively participates in meetings and decision-making processes.

The Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE)

With 57 States from Europe, Central Asia and North America, the OSCE is the world’s largest regional security organization. It offers a forum for political negotiations and decision-making in the fields of early warning, conflict prevention, crisis management and post-conflict rehabilitation. It puts the political will of its participating states into practice through its unique network of field missions. Its comprehensive view of security covers three dimensions: the politico-military, the economic and environmental and the human. Since 2003 Afghanistan became a partner for co-operation to the OSCE. Thus Afghanistan, as one of OSCE’s Asian partners, benefits from shared experience of the OSCE in a number of areas, such as a new security paradigm, conflict prevention, applicability of confidence-building mechanisms, human dimension security and anti-trafficking.
