Mandates

UNODC is working to mainstream a gender perspective into all aspects of its work, by making women, men, girls and boy's concerns and experiences an integral dimension of the design, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of all institutional processes, programmes and activities. The Office plays a leading global role in supporting Member States in addressing organized crime, corruption and terrorism and in promoting criminal justice reform, drug demand reduction and HIV/AIDS prevention, thus contributing to the achievement of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals and their 169 targets. Through its work at the global, national and regional levels, UNODC provides support to Member States in reaching their targets under the 2030 Agenda.
 
A series of international instruments and resolutions call upon Member States to mainstream a gender equality perspective into their legislation and policies and to adopt special measures to promote gender equality and the empowerment of women. Those instruments and resolutions also provide guidance to the work of UNOV/UNODC.
