UNODC's main role will be to support partner countries to adopt and implement the UNCAC. It will also work with them to use the UNCAC as an analytical tool to assess partner countries' requirements as they move toward full compliance. It will seek to do this through providing technical support to translate the provisions of the UNCAC to build sustainable institutions and procedures. The RPF will focus its support on four main areas of work.

Our main achievements in 2011
- UNCAC was ratified by Cook Islands, Marshall Islands, Thailand and Vanuatu, with support from UNODC.
- The first cycle of UNCAC reviews was launched under the UNCAC Review Mechanism with support from UNODC. Two reviews (Mongolia and Indonesia) were completed; two reviews (Fiji and Papua New Guinea) have been nearly completed; and five countries (Brunei Darussalam, Lao PDR, the Philippines, Timor Leste and Viet Nam) are undergoing ongoing review.
