We have the pleasure of sharing with NGOs and governments a report that was launched on the 13th of April; titled “Zooming in on UNGASS”. The report is produced by Drug Policy Futures; a global network of civil society organisations.

As the title indicates, the report takes a closer look at what has happened in the form of national follow-up of the UNGASS Outcome Document in 15 selected countries. You will see a batch of recommendations at the beginning of the report. The overall message is that all countries can improve their national drug policies by using more of the “UNGASS menu” and that national implementation should be speeded up in the years up to 2029. The report recommends how this can be done. Please feel free to share the report with colleagues and in your networks.

CND Side-event: Zooming in on UNGASS implementation
from 2021-04-13 10:00:00 to 2021-04-13 10:50:00
Drug Policy Futures and national affiliates from around the globe has embarked on a ten-year monitoring programme where we will follow the implementation of the UNGASS Outcome Document in a number of selected countries in Asia, Africa, Europe and the Americas.

In the periode up to 2029 the aim is to produce three or four status reports where we document what is happening at the national level and where UNGASS implementation is lagging behind.

The side-event will present key results from our first monitoring report and focus on these issues, among others: National drug strategies, reducing drug use prevalence, prevention strategies, mobilization of local communities and of parents groups, role of self-help methods, special needs of women. What has happened in these areas since UNGASS in 2016?

At the side-event, conclusions from the report will be presented briefly by representatives of the host organisations and then commented by national representatives.
