IDPC seeks to offer constructive advice on how to develop and implement more humane and effective policies at the national level. The international system of drug control influences national governments towards enforcement and punishment dominated approaches, while evidence on the ground shows that the problems related to drug markets and use are much more complex and intractable.
IDPC Drug Policy Guide for best practice in national drug policy
We have developed a national Drug Policy Guide of best practice and evidence from around the world to produce concise advice and guidance on best practices in the key areas of policy and programme design. The Guide is a key resource to support the advocacy efforts of the IDPC regional groups. Its content is available for direct dissemination to policy makers; for use as the basis of meetings, seminars or training sessions; or as a resource for government officials as they review and revise their drug policies.
