Regional Programme Framework


The Regional Programme for South Eastern Europe for the period of 2012-2015 (RP) "Countering Illicit Trafficking and Organized Crime for Improved Governance, Justice and Security" focuses on the so-called "Balkan Route" region, the major route for the illicit trafficking of heroin from West Asia into Europe. The RP was endorsed by the participating countries and launched on 23 May 2012 by the UNODC Executive Director Mr. Yury Fedotov. The RP has three Sub-Programmes. Its Sub-Programme 1 foresees comprehensive interventions in law enforcement and drug trafficking areas, which will focus on countering the Afghan heroine route going through the Balkans, based on the UNODC expertise in this area. RP's Sub-Programme 2 is aimed at improving justice and integrity in the countries, while Sub-Programme 3 is aimed at health consequences of drug abuse.
