We stand at a unique moment in history. We have a once in a lifetime opportunity to create an unprecedented legal framework that reconfigures one of the world’s major illegal trades – to make it work for social justice rather than against it.

We have identified 15 key priorities to be included in legal regulation policy that will directly impact and strengthen sustainable development and global equity.

This paper is an invitation for organisations and advocates to get involved in the process of developing legal regulation and by doing so begin to address the harms caused by years of prohibition.
