Doing Good - Hublot the UNODC and Falcao

As it is Christmas Eve, let's get things started on a warm 'n fuzzy note.  This is a project Hublot has been working on, and I have to say it is pretty impressive!  Well done to the folks in Nyon!

And here's the info straight from Nyon -

Hublot and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime provide the wetland community with a sports centre and a fish storage centre, which will allow sufficient space for the children to play, and give a final push to a production project that they are promoting with UNODC.

For those of you not familiar with the UNODC, here is some info:
Known as the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime, here is how they describe what they do:

UNODC is a global leader in the fight against illicit drugs and international crime. Established in 1997 through a merger between the United Nations Drug Control Programme and the Centre for International Crime Prevention, UNODC operates in all regions of the world through an extensive network of field offices. UNODC relies on voluntary contributions, mainly from Governments, for 90 per cent of its budget.
UNODC is mandated to assist Member States in their struggle against illicit drugs, crime and terrorism. In the Millennium Declaration, Member States also resolved to intensify efforts to fight transnational crime in all its dimensions, to redouble the efforts to implement the commitment to counter the world drug problem and to take concerted action against international terrorism.
The three pillars of the UNODC work programme are:
  • Field-based technical cooperation projects to enhance the capacity of Member States to counteract illicit drugs, crime and terrorism
  • Research and analytical work to increase knowledge and understanding of drugs and crime issues and expand the evidence base for policy and operational decisions
  • Normative work to assist States in the ratification and implementation of the relevant international treaties, the development of domestic legislation on drugs, crime and terrorism, and the provision of secretariat and substantive services to the treaty-based and governing bodies
In pursuing its objectives, UNODC makes every effort to integrate and mainstream the gender perspective, particularly in its projects for the provision of alternative livelihoods, as well as those against human trafficking.
