Objective of Report

In 2019, UN member states will evaluate progress made against targets and commitments set in the 2009 ‘Political Declaration and Plan of Action on International Cooperation towards an Integrated and Balanced Strategy to Counter the World Drug Problem’.[1] The International Drug Policy Consortium is preparing a global shadow report that unpacks and evaluates progress over the past decade and identifies a possible approach for measuring success in drug control, based on the UNGASS Outcome Document[2] and the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

A supplement to the global shadow report will be drafted with a focus on Asia that will evaluate progress by countries in the region over the same period, based on regional commitments made in relation to drug control and HIV (including in Southeast Asia and South Asia), in addition to the 2009 Political Declaration and Plan of Action, UNGASS Outcome Document and the SDGs.
