In West and Central Africa, most countries face significant changes in criminal trends and the security situation is quickly deteriorating: increase in cocaine seizures, development of local laboratories for production synthetic drugs, trafficking in falsified medical products, global hotspot for piracy in the Gulf of Guinea, terrorism threat initially contained in the Sahel region spreading east and southward towards coastal countries, intra-regional and inter-regional trafficking in persons. The persistence of armed violence, internal and cross-border movements of armed groups affect the stability of the sub-region. The availability of illicit small arms, light weapons and ammunition contributes to this instability and escalates local disputes, enabling violent extremists, terrorists and armed groups to control larger territories. Moreover, the region’s environment, ecosystems and biodiversity are increasingly threatened by various forms of crimes that affect the environment including waste trafficking, illegal wildlife trade, illegal mining, timber or crimes in the fisheries sector.
Law enforcement is therefore of high priority for the UNODC in the region, especially regarding transnational organized crime and border management.
In the framework of the implementation of the new project “Regional Centre of Excellence on Transnational Organized Crime” in Abidjan, the UNODC Regional Office for West and Central Africa (ROSEN) has started to strengthen its presence in Côte d’Ivoire.
This position is located in the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) Programme Office in Cote d’Ivoire (POCIV). The overall guidance will be provided by the UNODC Regional Representative in Dakar, Senegal, and the Head of Office in Abidjan, Cote d’Ivoire. Under the direct supervision of the Senior LE Advisor, the incumbent will assist in project management and implementation in line with written guidelines and instructions developed by UNODC on project cycle management and project implementation.
Under the overall guidance of the Head of the Law Enforcement Section (LE) of the UNODC Regional Office for West and Central Africa (ROSEN), the Programme Associate will provide programme support services ensuring high quality, accuracy and consistency of work. The incumbent will be responsible for all administrative tasks and selected substantive assignments related to the work of the Law Enforcement Section with a focus on the Centre of Excellence project.
The Programme Associate will work in close collaboration with the other UNODC ROSEN Project Coordinators (XAMU50, WACI, OCWAR-T) as well as operations, programme and project staff at UNODC ROSEN and country offices in the region as required to exchange information, analytic and support programme delivery.
