IDPC has been involved in a number of specific projects, in addition to the work we are already implementing:

Current projects

Women, Incarceration and Drug Policy in South East Asia

The project, implemented in collaboration with NoBox Transitions, the Ozone Foundation and LBH Masyarakat, aims to increase engagement of community and civil society organisations in advocacy for drug policy reform to result in improved outcomes for human rights, the rule of law, and ultimately reductions in the numbers of women in prison.

Women, drug policies and incarceration in the Americas

IDPC is working in partnership with WOLA, Dejusticia, CIM-OASACEID and Corporación Humanas Colombia to reduce the number of women incarcerated for drug offences in Latin America. 

Global Partnership on Drug Policies and Development (GPDPD)

This global and multi-sectoral programme implemented by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) on behalf of the Federal Ministry of Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), in partnership with organisations such as IDPC and TNI, seeks to establish and politically entrench sound rural development and health policies in dealing with drugs, and to reinforce these at the United Nations and at country level.

The Harm Reduction Consortium

The Consortium is a partnership between IDPC and other six leading international and regional harm reduction, drug policy and drug user networks to deliver a long-term programme to strengthen civil society advocacy for the “critical enablers” of the HIV response for people who use drugs.  

Past projects

Disseminating the recommendations of the West Africa Commission on Drugs (2014 - 2015)

With funding from USAID, the Kofi Annan Foundation and IDPC worked alongside the West Africa Commission on Drugs in 2014 and 2015 to disseminate the Commission's report and recommendations, through the organisation of workshops and country visits.

Asia Action on Harm Reduction (2013 - 2015)

This project, funded by the EC and led by the International HIV/AIDS Alliance, in collaboration with a number of partners, sought to build the political and social momentum for change by empowering civil society to inform, advocate for, and bring about social and political change to address HIV. 

Community Action on Harm Reduction (2010 - 2015)

IDPC was a technical partner in an ambitious project led by the International HIV/AIDS Alliance, aiming to expand harm reduction services to 180,000 injecting drug users, their partners and children in China, India, Indonesia, Kenya, and Malaysia.

New approaches in drug policy and interventions (2013 - 2014)

IDPC worked in partnership with the Transnational Institute, Diogenis and Forum Droghe to implement this project funded by the European Commission Drug Prevention and Information Programme. The project promoted debates on innovative drug policy alternatives. 

Modernising drug law enforcement  (2012 - 2013)

This project, led by IDPC in partnership with the International Security Research Department at Chatham House and IISS, collated and refined theoretical material and examples of new approaches to drug law enforcement.
