The Institutional Strengthening Unit

 

The Institutional Strengthening Unit

  1. The Unit provides technical assistance to support the strengthening of member States’ institutions and their capabilities, and the design and implementation of drug policies and actions. This covers the reinforcement of their institutional capacities; legislation review; and the design, development, implementation, monitoring and evaluation of public policies, strategies, programs and actions on drug related matters.
  2. The Unit will cooperate with the various governmental and nongovernmental agencies to achieve the coordination required to that end, coordinating its efforts with other dependencies of the Secretariat for Multidimensional Security, of the General Secretariat, and of other national, regional, and international organizations and of civil society. 
  3. The Unit develops and executes programs to support countries in the area of alternatives to incarceration for drug related offences, in order to ensure the well-being of individuals and communities and reducing the prison population, together with the promotion of social integration strategies and programs.
  4. Given the cross-cutting nature of its activities, in carrying out its technical assistance activities, the Unit will coordinate with other Units in the ES/CICAD and, where appropriate, other Units in the SMS.
