In 2020, the Harm Reduction Consortium* submitted a successful proposal to the Robert Carr Fund (RCF) to deliver a new project titled: ‘The Global Drug Policy Index (GDPI): A bold new approach to improve policies, harm reduction funding, and the lives of people who use drugs’.

The GDPI project aims to develop and implement a new composite index to document, measure and compare government policies related to drugs deemed illicit. 

The GDPI will be housed in a brand-new website with relevant branding (including a dedicated logo). The website will display data to a diverse audience, which is why it is imperative that the design is engaging, accessible and prioritises ease of use.

Proposals to develop the GDPI's new website and branding should be submitted by 3 March 2021, via e-mail to Juan Fernandez Ochoa, IDPC Campaigns & Communications Officer (jfernandez[@]idpc.net). Please ensure the subject contains the following in the subject line: GDPI Website & Branding development. Award decisions will be made by 5 March 2021 at the latest. Please note that we will only be able to respond to proposals that respond to this brief.
