ZIMBABWE is fully committed to promoting a peaceful and inclusive society for sustainable development, Home Affairs and Cultural Heritage Permanent Secretary Ambassador Raphael Faranisi has said.

Addressing delegates at the Thirty-Third Session of the Commission on Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice in Vienna, Austria yesterday, Ambassador Faranisi said a peaceful environment was key for the National Development Strategy 1 to succeed.

“This obligation is given prominence in the country’s mid-term development blueprint – the National Development Strategy 1 (NDS1) – which stresses the importance of enhancing crime prevention and justice delivery to achieve improved justice delivery as one of the key result areas,” he said.

“Several initiatives are being implemented in Zimbabwe to further these imperatives.

“Given its unique position to support the achievement of SDG 16 through assistance in areas such as reducing violence, ending abuse, countering trafficking in persons and wildlife, addressing illicit financial and arms flows, and preventing and countering corruption, Zimbabwe counts on the support of the UNODC through the appropriate technical cooperation programmes.”
