UNODC survey: Sport for youth crime prevention and criminal justice

UNODC is looking for organisations and practitioners using sport for youth crime prevention and criminal justice to share their experiences to identify best practices.

The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) is conducting a brief online survey on the use of sport and sports-based programmes to reduce violence. The survey is being promoted globally by ConnectSport partner,, the International Platform on Sport and Development.

Any organisation implementing such programmes can reply to the survey and share their experience and lessons learnt. Responses to the survey will be collated and used by UNODC to inform the process of identifying good practices in the integration of sport into youth crime prevention and criminal justice strategies, as requested by ECOSOC resolution E/RES/2019/16.

Replies must be submitted by 31 October 2019 in order to be included in the international consultation.

Take the survey here.
