This third edition of the IDPC multilingual webinar series on the UN Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND) focuses on its 61st Session, which will take place in Vienna from 12-16 March 2018. The Session will be the last major drug policy gathering of the international community before the 2019 target date set out by the 2009 Political Declaration and Action Plan. The webinar series will shed light on the contentious issues that are likely to structure the debates, discuss tabled resolutions and opportunities for engagement, and showcase the experience of IDPC network members in navigating and leveraging this forum for political advocacy.

A video introduction to the Commission's functioning and mechanisms of engagement is also available.
