UNODC action plan on Haiti

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has applauded a joint action plan developed by the Caribbean Community of States (CARICOM) and the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) to combat the problem of organised transnational crime and the proliferation of small arms and light weapons in Haiti. “We must address security issues and social causes simultaneously. I welcome the fact that the … Caribbean Basin Security Initiative goes beyond traditional law enforcement approach, and I applaud CARICOM States on all your efforts to combat illicit trade in small arms and light weapons”, said Mr Ban.
