The Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND) is the central policy-making body of the United Nations drug control system. The Commission meets every year for a week in March, at the Vienna International Centre (Austria), to discuss drug policy issues and adopt resolutions on the direction of international drug control for the coming year[s]. Attended by member states, UN agencies and civil society organisations, the sessions of the CND provide a platform for advocacy efforts, the expansion of networks and knowledge sharing. This series of webinars explains the Commission's functioning, presents an overview of the key issues concerning the upcoming 60th Session, and offers guidance to facilitate NGO engagement.
