Training toolkit on drug policy advocacy
Please note that this Training Toolkit has not been updated for the last five years and the information contained therein may be outdated. IDPC is currently scoping for options to effect relevant updates to the Toolkit.
This training toolkit has been developed by the International Drug Policy Consortium (IDPC) and the Eurasian Harm Reduction Network (EHRN) to build the capacity of civil society organisations for engaging with, and influencing, drug policy making processes.
This toolkit can be used by anybody wishing to deliver trainings and workshops on drug policy advocacy to their civil society partners and members. It covers the areas of drug policy, civil society advocacy and harm reduction, and is intended as a comprehensive menu of activities and content from which a facilitator can pick and choose the ones which best suit the context, audience and timeframe.
This Toolkit was also adapted for West Africa - please click here for this version of the Toolkit, which also includes two additional Modules, one on drug prevention and treatment, the other on security and organised crime.
