Description

Description

The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) was formed to implement actions against the global drug problem, illegal activities and terrorism in a united manner, talking about the consistent drug control issues, prevention of crime and global terrorism in the background of sustainable growth and human safety. The policy guidelines of UNODC revolve around:

 

  • The global drug control pacts, the United Nations Convention against Transnational Organized Crime and the Protocols thereto, the United Nations Convention against Corruption, and the widespread lawful instruments against terrorism in all its methods and appearances
  • Main purposes of governmental structures, in specific of the General Assembly, the Economic and Social Council, the Commission on Narcotic Drugs and the Commission on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice.

 

This UNV project is part of the UNODC Regional Office for Eastern Africa’s (UNODC ROEA) Regional Programme (2016-2021). The purpose of this Regional Programme is to continue to improve the rule of law and human security across the Eastern Africa region, through actions explicitly personalized to fight present challenges and address evolving threats. This project will have a distinct emphasis on the Global Programme for the execution of the Doha Declaration, specifically its Education for Justice (E4J) initiative, which intends to promote a culture of legality and youth engagement on issues relevant to rule of law through educational resources and actions at the primary, secondary and tertiary education points.

Benefits

Benefits

A UN Volunteer receives a Volunteer Living Allowance (VLA) which is composed of the Monthly Living Allowance (MLA) and a Family Allowance (FA) for those with dependents (maximum three).

 

The Volunteer Living Allowance (VLA) is paid at the end of each month to cover housing, utilities, transportation, communications and other basic needs. The VLA can be computed by applying the Post-Adjustment Multiplier (PAM) to the VLA base rate of US$ 1,651. The VLA base rate is a global rate across the world, while the PAM is duty station/country-specific and fluctuates on a monthly basis according to the cost of living.

 

This method ensures that international UN Volunteers have comparable purchasing power at all duty stations irrespective of varying costs of living. The PAM is established by the International Civil Service Commission (ICSC) and is published at the beginning of every month on the ICSC website http://icsc.un.org.
