A Report on Global Illicit Drug Markets 1998-2007

7 April 2009

In response to concerns that the official data collected by the UNODC for the 10 year review of drug policy would be insufficient, the European Commission funded a research study into the scale and nature of global drug markets, and the trends in these markets over the last decade. The resulting report was launched at the 2009 CND, and concluded that there was no evidence to support the claim that the scale of the problem was being reduced.
