Duties and Responsibilities

The work of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) is guided by a broad range of international legally binding instruments and a set of United Nations standards and norms on crime prevention and criminal justice. UNODC is the guardian of the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime (UNTOC) and the United Nations Convention against Corruption (UNCAC). The Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND) and the Commission on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice (CCPCJ) are the governing bodies of UNODC and the central policymaking organs within the United Nations system dealing with drug- and crime-related matters.

Through GLOU68 programme – “Partnership and Engagement with Non-Governmental Stakeholders on Anti-Corruption, Drugs, and Crime Prevention” – UNODC Civil Society Unit (CSU) serves as a bridge between civil society, UNODC field offices, substantive offices and Member States. UNODC CSU supports the participation of civil society organizations in intergovernmental meetings in line with relevant UNODC mandates and rules of procedure for the respective intergovernmental bodies and delivers training to help them interact constructively with the United Nations and its Member States.

GLOU68 programme has two main segments: drugs and crime, including corruption. On crime related issues, the UNODC Civil Society Unit (CSU) is implementing two projects on stakeholder engagement for the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime, its Review Mechanism and Related Activities. As such, UNODC is preparing NGOs, private sector, and academia to support Member States in a successful implementation of the UNTOC Review Mechanism. Furthermore, the CSU aims to improve effective partnerships between the public and private sectors with a view to assisting Member States in their implementation of the Convention.

The anti-corruption module of the GLOU68 programme aims to strengthen the voice of civil society in the national and international fight against corruption by facilitating their participation in intergovernmental meetings, trainings and grant schemes, specifically as related to the implementation of the United Nations Convention against Corruption and its Review Mechanism.

On drug-related mandate, the CSU facilitates the participation of NGOs in intergovernmental meetings of the CND and builds the capacity of drug-related NGOs on international drug policy instruments such as the 2019 Ministerial Declaration and the 2016 UNGASS Outcome Document.
