Duties and Responsibilities
- Background of the Assignment
As the global guardian of the United Nations standards and norms in crime prevention and criminal justice, UNODC is mandated to support Member States in upholding the rule of law, promoting crime prevention and effective, fair, humane and accountable criminal justice systems. Within the framework of the UNODC Regional Programme for Eastern Africa (2016-2021), and in close cooperation with the Regional Section for Africa and the Middle East at UNODC headquarters, the Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice (CPCJ) Programme seeks to implement these objectives through support to major justice reforms processes undertaken by East African States.
In line with this mandate, the UNODC project ‘Strengthening the Administration of Justice and operationalizing alternatives to imprisonment in Kenya’ aims to support the Government of Kenya to strengthen efficiency in delivery of judicial services, enhance coordination within the criminal justice sector and widen the use and application of alternatives to imprisonment. The project is designed to implement a part of the Programme for Legal Aid and Empowerment in Kenya (PLEAD). The Programme is funded by the European Union and targets the counties with the five largest urban centers of the country (Kisumu, Mombasa, Nairobi, Nakuru and Uasin Gishu) and seven counties of the most marginalized area within the country (Garissa, Isiolo, Lamu, Mandera, Marsabit, Tana River and Wajir).
The PLEAD component implemented by UNODC targets support to the following institutions in the justice chain (national partners):
i. The National Council on the Administration of Justice (NCAJ);
ii. The Judiciary;
iii. The Office of the Director of Public Prosecutions (ODPP);
iv. The Kenyan Probation and Aftercare Service (KPAS);
v. The Witness Protection Agency (WPA).
UNODC, through PLEAD, seeks to promote harnessing of information and communications technology (ICT) by the criminal justice sector in enhancing interagency coordination and improving the administration of justice in Kenya.
