On November 8, in Vienna, Monaco signed a funding agreement with the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC).

HE Ms Isabelle Berro-Amadei, Ambassador, Permanent Representative of Principality of Monaco to the UNODC and Mr Jean-Luc Lemahieu, the organisation’s Director of Policy Analysis and Public Affairs, signed a two-year funding agreement for 2016-2017, to help the Sahel countries – Burkina Faso, Mali, Mauritania and Niger – develop their criminal justice systems in the fight against terrorism and violent extremism.

This program is part of ongoing Monegasque actions within the UNODC and, in general, continuous efforts of the Government of Monaco in this scourge.
