Law Enforcement

Afghanistan faces tremendous drugs and crime challenges that require effective responses. While around 80% of the world's opiates comes from Afghanistan, only around 2% is sized in country. Along the borders of Afghanistan unimpeded movement of insurgents and the massive illicit trade of drugs, precursor chemicals, money, people and weapons are proliferating. Increased support to the Counter Narcotics Police of Afghanistan (CNPA) and Afghan Border Police (ABP) by UNODC and international partners has boosted operational success on which UNODC law enforcement sub-programme will further capitalise and enhance on through further delivery of core objectives.

Sub-programme 1 supports national partners in Afghanistan in specific niche areas such as border management, capacity development of the Counter Narcotics Police of Afghanistan, precursor control, investigative capacity development of the relevant government institutions to counter trafficking in persons, smuggling of migrants (TiP/SOM) and corruption as well as to implement the Financial Action Task Force (FATF) recommendations for Anti-money Laundering (AML) and Combating the Financing of Terrorism (CFT). In working towards securing the borders, the sub-programme includes support in equipment and training for drug interdiction operations, developing programmes to identify those involved in TiP/SOM as well as ensuring Afghanistan's active participation in regional border management activities.
