United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC)


The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) is a United Nations office that was established in 1997. It is a member of the United Nations Development Group and was renamed the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime in 2002.

UNODC was established to assist the UN in better addressing a coordinated, comprehensive response to the interrelated issues of illicit trafficking in and abuse of drugs, crime prevention and criminal justice, international terrorism, and political corruption. These goals are pursued through three primary functions: research, guidance and support to governments in the adoption and implementation of various crime-, drug-, terrorism-, and corruption-related conventions, treaties and protocols, as well as technical/financial assistance to said governments to face their respective situations and challenges in these fields.

These are the main themes that UNODC deals with:

  • Alternative Development,
  • Corruption,
  • Criminal Justice,
  • Prison Reform and Crime Prevention,
  • Drug Prevention,
  • Treatment and Care, HIV and AIDS,
  • Human Trafficking and Migrant Smuggling,
  • Money Laundering,
  • Organized Crime,
  • Piracy,
  • Terrorism Prevention. 

Through the World Drug Report, UNODC aims to enhance Member States understanding of global illicit drug trends and increase their awareness of the need for the more systematic collection and reporting of data relating to illicit drugs.

APG23 participates in the work of UNODC on two themes: the fight against drug abuse and the fight against trafficking in human beings, bringing his experience on the ground in the countries where it is present and doing advocacy for the eradication of the causes these injustices.
