The Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND) and the Commission on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice (CCPCJ) are the Governing Bodies of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC). Their resolutions and decisions provide guidance in their respective areas to Member States and UNODC. The CND and CCPCJ are functional commissions of the Economic and Social Council. The thematic areas covered by the CND and CCPCJ are also dealt with by the General Assembly, in particular its Third Committee, which deals with Social, Humanitarian and Cultural Affairs. Technical and substantive services to the Commissions are provided by the Secretariat to the Governing Bodies.
Both Commissions have tasked a standing open-ended intergovernmental working group with considering how to improve the governance structure and financial situation of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime.
