The Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND) will host a number of thematic discussions on the implementation of the outcome document of the United Nations General Assembly Special Session (UNGASS) on the world drug problem on 10-11 October and 27-28 October 2016 in Vienna, Austria. NGOs are encouraged to work through the VNGOC to coordinate contributions, in order to ensure an inclusive, comprehensive, balanced and meaningful civil society participation. At this moment in time, the discussion will focus on concrete actions currently taken by various stakeholders at various levels to implement the UNGASS outcome document, rather than on policy prescriptions.
 
2-4 NGO contributions per UNGASS outcome document chapter can be accommodated. With a view to having an interactive discussion, H.E. Ambassador Pedro Moitinho, CND Facilitator on post-UNGASS 2016, has agreed to call, if possible, for statements by NGOs during the thematic discussions.

Timeline for CND intersessional meeting 27-28 October 2016 to be announced.

These meetings will be web cast on the UNODC web site (more info on this, once available). Also, there is the opportunity to submit the statements delivered and others directly related to the implementation of the UNGASS outcome document recommendations for posting on the UNODC web site. The VNGOC will coordinate the posting of the former, while others may be submitted to the CND Secretariat directly.
