As part of its mandate, UNODC has been providing technical assistance in the area of justice sector reform globally and in Nigeria specifically for several years and has built up a knowledge base of successful practices in all the areas of crime prevention and criminal justice reform, including with a strong focus on sectoral approaches to such reforms. UNODC also has strong relationships with national and international counterparts in the region and the capacity to mobilize its global network for efficient delivery of its mandate.
