IDPC, in collaboration with the National Rehabilitation Centre of Abu Dhabi (NRC), is hosting its first seminar on drug policy in the Middle East / North Africa region. The seminar will be held at the Emirates Centre for Strategic Studies and Research in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, on 3rd and 4th January 2011.

The seminar aims to examine the current state of drug policies in the region, identify key areas for discussion and improvement, and agree on a method of working together to develop networking and advocacy activities.

The seminar will particularly focus on issues related to drug prevention, drug dependence treatment, harm reduction, drug laws and law enforcement. Each session will consist of discussions on the current challenges and examples of best practice in the region.

If your organisation is based in the Middle East / North Africa region and that you believe that you could contribute positively to the discussions, please send the attendance form below back to mnougier@idpc.net.

We look forward to hearing from you!
