Background and rationale
The negative impact of transnational organized crime, specially drug and human trafficking and related cross-cutting crimes, corruption and money laundering, has been recognized at the highest level by the Guinea-Bissau authorities, and the fight against it has become a national priority.
Since early 2000s, Guinea-Bissau has become associated with high levels of illicit activity particularly drug trafficking. Following two major hauls of cocaine of 674 kg and 625 kg respectively in 2006 and 2007, the country gained a reputation as a center for the transshipment of drugs and has been labelled since then as West Africa’s premier “narco-state.”
The coastal topography of the country, composed of an archipelago of 88 mangrove- and palm-fringed islands, provided an ideal setting for the conduct of illicit activities and created the conditions for the country to be an attractive hub for transnational organized crime and drug trafficking. Limited State presence, porous borders and its linguistic and cultural ties to Brazil, Cabo Verde and Portugal have also played a role in Guinea-Bissau positioning along the transshipment routes from South America to West African and Europe.
Nowadays, Guinea-Bissau continues to serve as a landing point and transit hub for international drug trafficking and other forms of transnational organized crime.
In this sense, and with the aim to partially address the problem in Guinea-Bissau, in 2020 the IOM, UNODC and UNDP, with support of United Nations Peacebuilding Fund, initiated the implementation of the project “Strengthening the justice and security sector response to drug trafficking and transnational organized crime to reduce insecurity in Guinea-Bissau “, in close cooperation with national authorities.
Transnational organized crime, including drug trafficking, impacts the whole population, but especially vulnerable groups: women, youth, children. The project aims also to strengthen the oversight mechanisms over the responsible institutions, including by empowering the community. Beside the oversight mechanism, the communities will be associated to the creation of tools that could enhance information sharing particularly regarding corruption and human trafficking. For that purpose, the project will convene a series of national consultations and a sensitization campaign with leading institutions to clarify the division of labor, mandate and responsibilities among security, justice and civil society actors and enhance and replicate existing community-oriented practices and networks with a focus on analysis the impact and enhance the response of the justice and security institutions to the needs of vulnerable groups, including women, men, boys and girls.
It is in this context that UNDP intends to recruit an national consultant specialized in community-oriented practices and social mobilization to support the international consultant in the elaboration of an strategy of Citizen Security/Community Police at sub-national level (Gabu) and support in the social mobilization, facilitating trainings and workshops.
