The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) Country Office in Pakistan (COPAK) has developed the third phase of its country programme, building on the progress and the contributions made and lessons learned from phases I (2010-2016) and II (2016-2019 - extended until 2021 due to COVID-19). It is an integrated country programme approach that builds on the One UN ethos, enjoys the full support of the Government of Pakistan (GoP) and the civil society, and will contribute to progress towards the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It also localizes the UNODC Corporate Strategy 2021-25 to the needs and priorities of the Government of Pakistan and the Member States supporting the country.
