Sustainable livelihoods and the legal regulation of drugs


Sustainable livelihoods and the legal regulation of drugs

13 November 2020

Part Six of the webinar series - 'A World with Drugs: Legal Regulation through a Development Lens'.

The concept of ‘alternative development’ has dominated the intersection of drug control and development historically – but has been subject to growing critique. We explore how can it evolve into meaningful promotion of sustainable livelihoods for impacted communities, including possibilities for transitioning into legally regulated drug crop products.

An exciting line-up of speakers will be announced shortly.

This webinar will be in English, we are exploring options for live Spanish translation.

18 November, 16:30-18:00 BST.
London – 15:30-17:00, Bogota – 11:30-12:00, New York, 10:30-12:00, Johannesburg – 17:30-19:00, Delhi – 21:00-22:30.

This webinar is part of a wider series exploring why the socially just legal regulation of drugs is vital for sustainable development. We will explore how drug policies intersect with some of the most pressing issues facing the development sector, and identify how to make sure legally regulated drug markets work for people along the supply chain.
