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.
