El proyecto piloto, que es fruto de la colaboración entre la Agencia Alemana de Cooperación Técnica (GIZ) y LSE Ideas, tiene por objetivo salvar la brecha que existe entre la teoría y la práctica en el ámbito de las drogas. Más información, en inglés, está disponible abajo.

The GIZ Global Partnership on Drug Policies and Development (GPDPD) and the LSE IDEAS International Drug Policy Project (IDPP) are pleased to announce a pilot for a new 'Innovation Lab on Drug Policies and Human Development'.

According to IDEAS Director Professor Michael Cox:

“this pilot, the first of its kind globally, represents a truly unique collaboration between a development agency and one of the world’s leading university-affiliated think tanks. It will enable the design of innovative drug-sensitive development policies through ongoing discussions with governments, international organisations and development bodies and ultimately to facilitate policy implementation.”

The immediate objective of the Innovation Lab pilot is to translate the April 2016 UN General Assembly Special Session on Drugs (UNGASS) outcome document and recent international debates into smart drugs-related development policies in affected countries.

The GIZ Global Partnership on Drug Policies and Development (GPDPD) is implemented on behalf of the Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) and under the political auspices of the Federal Drug Commissioner of the Federal Government of Germany. It seeks to promote a development and health oriented approach to drug policy internationally.
