The mission of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) is to work towards security and justice for all, by making the world safer from drugs, crime, corruption, and terrorism. The Regional Programme for Southeast Asia 2014-2017 works towards this goal and is supported by the work of UNODC's office in Cambodia.

Cambodia has made notable strides in recent years confronting development challenges but significant hurdles remain. While continuing regional integration and rapid economic changes within the country are positive developments, they also present other challenges related to border security, corruption, drugs and human trafficking. UNODC is currently working with the Government of Cambodia to confront these challenges.

In line with UNODC mandates, UNODC's work in Cambodia responds to these challenges via five inter-related Sub-Programmes:

(1) Transnational Organised Crime and Illicit Trafficking;
(2) Anti-Corruption;
(3) Terrorism Prevention;
(4) Criminal Justice Systems; and
(5) Drugs and Health, and Alternative Development.
