Indonesia Office

Overview

The mission of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) is to contribute to the achievement of security and justice for all by making the world safer from drugs, crime, corruption and terrorism. In Indonesia, the present Country Programme translates this vision into a platform for strategic action in Indonesia supported by the Indonesia Office of UNODC. It has been developed by UNODC in close consultation with the Government of Indonesia (GOI), civil society organizations, development partners and other UN agencies.

Indonesia faces a number of challenges relating to drugs, crime and terrorism over the past years. To support Indonesia, UNODC place a strong emphasis on providing:

  • Normative services to assist Indonesia in the ratification and implementation of international legal treaties, the development of domestic legislation on drugs, crime and terrorism;
  • Research and analysis to increase knowledge and understanding of drugs and crime issues; and
  • Technical assistance to strengthen Indonesia's capacity to counteract forest crimes, illicit drugs, corruption, HIV/AIDS, organized crime and terrorism.

In line with UNODC mandates, the Indonesia Country Programme responds to these challenges via five inter-related Sub-Programmes: (1) Transnational Organized Crime and Illicit Trafficking, (2) Anti-Corruption, (3) Terrorism Prevention, (4) Justice and (5) Drugs and HIV. Within each Sub- Programme are the outcomes and outputs UNODC aims to achieve in partnership with the GOI and other stakeholders.



UNODC established the Indonesia Programme Office in 2008 as part of an operational expansion in South-East Asia. Since then, the Office has grown substantially both in terms of its volume of work and staffing. It currently implements technical assistance programmes in the volume of more than US $3 million a year, with 20 staff located in Jakarta, Palangkaraya, Jayapura and Dili (Timor Leste).

Currently, UNODC is supported financially by the Government of Norway, the Government of Australia, the European Union, the Government of the United States of America, the Government of Canada as well as the Indonesian Government.
