UNODC has been working in Ethiopia since 1995. The nature and scope of our engagement continues to be guided by its mandates as well as the strategic policies and priorities of the Federal Democratic Republic of Ethiopia (FDRE). The FDRE has contributed to the development and signed the UNODC Regional Programme for Eastern Africa; “Promoting the Rule of Law and Human Security (2016-2021)”.

The Ethiopia office is an extension of the work at the regional level, overseeing the programing designed to meet the specific needs of the Ethiopian Government.  Since 1995, UNODC support to Ethiopia has increased incrementally, introducing new projects to enhance Ethiopian systems in the areas of transnational organised crime, criminal justice and related health concerns
