UNAFRI, like its sister regional Institutes: HEUNI, ILANUD and UNAFEI; is mandated, inter alia, to promote the United Nations Crime Programme in Africa.

UNAFRI is a vital regional mechanism to coordinate regional cooperation and harmonise the provision of needed technical assistance through tailored activities in the field of Crime Prevention and Criminal Justice Systems in Africa.

As the window of United Nations Crime Prevention strategies and framework to Africa, the Institute derives its legitimacy for its operations from the needs of Member States in Crime Prevention, particularly as Crime has been noted to be a major impediment to sustained social development.
