Global Programme Thematic Areas



The Global Programme (GP) acts as the overarching umbrella programme for UNODC activities on wildlife and forest crime (WLFC). It involves liaising closely with UNODC Country and Regional Offices to ensure appropriate support for the design and delivery of WLFC projects and activities.

The GP delivers a range of technical assistance activities within several thematic areas towards achieving the key project objective of strengthening capacity to prevent and combat WLFC on a regional, national and local basis. It also serves to raise awareness of WLFC among different stakeholders including civil society and aims to contribute to the reduction of demand for wild fauna and flora.

Additionally, the GP improves cooperation and capacity of Member States to work, locally, nationally and internationally to address WLFC as well as other forms of serious and organized crime.

Within each of the six thematic areas, focus is been placed on delivering a range of evidence based good practice, technical assistance measures to support national law enforcement, customs, border control and criminal justice agencies, as well as regional wildlife law enforcement agencies and networks, in their efforts to respond to WLFC.
