In Guinea Bissau, 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 authorities, and the fight against it has become a national priority. Therefore, considering the impact these crimes have in the development and stability of the country, as well as on the credibility and accountability of its institutions, the UN decided to support the national authorities to improve capacity for sustaining peace by supporting national actors in developing resilient national capacities and addressing conflict drivers that undermine social cohesion and that may lead to violent conflict. In this regard, UNDP, UNODC,
IOM, UNIOGBIS-CDTOC, combined their expertise for an integrated, coordinated approach in strengthening national capacities to address drug trafficking and organized crime during the United Nations reconfiguration in Guinea-Bissau.
