Background









UNDP has a global mandate to support governments in strengthening security and justice sector governance and has extensive experience in proving strategic advice and assistance in this regard in a range of countries and contexts globally.


UNDP Country Office in Pakistan is working to strengthen the rule of law and to ensure equal access to justice particularly for women and marginalized groups under its Rule of Law Programme across Pakistan in Khyber Pakhtunkhwa (KP) including the newly merged districts (NMDs), Balochistan, Gilgit Baltistan, and Islamabad Capital Territory. Working in close collaboration with a range of government rule of law and justice sector institutions, the overall Programme of work aims to enhance and sustain peace and stability for the longer- term in Pakistan.


As such, strengthening law enforcement capacities for responsive, accountable, and efficient service delivery to all populations in Pakistan is a key priority work strand of the UNDP Pakistan Rule of Law Programme and involves supporting a range of initiatives to strengthen law enforcement agencies (LEAs) with emphasis on the Police, Levies, Excise, and the Anti-Narcotic Force (ANF).


Against this backdrop and with generous funding from the United State Bureau of International Narcotics and Law Enforcement Affairs (INL), UNDP Rule of Law Programme is assisting Excise, Taxation and Anti- Narcotics Department Balochistan (ETAN-B) in its efforts to strengthen institutional capacity. The ETAN-B is a leading LEAs in Balochistan province of Pakistan, and it is mandated to inquire, investigate, and prosecute all offences related to intoxicants, narcotics, and precursors.


Its work is mandated under the Excise Regulation Act 1915, and the Control of Narcotics and Substance Act 1997 to control narcotics and drugs trafficking in Balochistan province. Additionally, the ETAN-B's work on drug control is also guided by laws related to opium and other illicit drugs, road safety, and prosecution of illicit drug-related offences. The hardest and most important challenge facing the ETAN-B is despite its extensive mandate; it is under-resourced to implement its mandate in Balochistan’s highly volatile and hard to reach geographical context.


In 2021 UNDP with support from INL conducted a series of consultations to assess ETAN-B’s institutional capacity needs i.e. staff capacity/ skill building requirements as well as infrastructure and equipment needs. The assessment findings highlighted that ETAN-B counter-narcotics personnel/ staff have not received any form of training in relevant subject matter areas that could have potentially improved their performance in field. It was also one of the key findings of the assessment.
