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 US $3 million a year, with 25 staff located in Jakarta, Semarang and Jayapura. The UNODC
Regional Office for Southeast Asia and the Pacific, located in Bangkok, oversees the activities of the Indonesia Programme Office.
The Government of Indonesia and UNODC in May 2012 signed a Country Programme 2012-2015 to guide joint efforts. The Country Programme identifies a number of strategic objectives over the next three years and broadly outlines how they will be achieved.
Indonesia faces a number of challenges relating to drugs, crime and terrorism. To support Indonesia, UNODC will 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 illicit drugs, corruption, HIV/AIDS, crime and terrorism.
UNODC recognizes the importance of strategic partnerships in achieving maximum impact and has established close working relationships with government and regional institutions, international and local non-government organizations (NGOs), and civil society organizations (CSOs). These institutions include the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, BAPPENAS (the National Development Planning Agency), the Ministry of Health, the Supreme Court, the Attorney General's Office (AGO), The Indonesian National Police (INP), BNN (the National Narcotics Agency), ASEAN, Transparency International, and numerous others.
Currently, UNODC is supported financially by the European Union, the Government of Norway, the Government of Germany as well as the Indonesian Government.
