In January 2008 the African Union (AU) launched a Plan of Action on Drug Control and Crime Prevention (2007-2012). The Plan acknowledged the “need for a comprehensive approach”, and aimed to “reverse the current trends of drug abuse and trafficking, organised crime, corruption, terrorism and related challenges to socio-economic development and human security”.

The AU Conference of Ministers of Drug Control is meeting on 8th to 12th October to review the progress made, and is expected to adopt a new AU Plan of Action on Drug Control (2013 - 2017).

On Monday 8th October, IDPC made a presentation at the AU meeting, presenting global evidence on drug policy and the recommendations included in the IDPC Advocacy Note directed at the African Union (available in English and French).
