Want to know your government’s positions on global drug policy? Find out on the CND Blog!

The Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND) is the central policy-making body of the UN drug control system. Despite this key mandate, it chooses to work in secrecy – meetings are not webcast and reports of the meeting are very limited.

The CND Blog is a project of the International Drug Policy Consortium, in collaboration with NGO partners, which aims to ensure transparency and provide live records of the discussions taking place at the meeting. The CND Blog also covered UNGASS negotiations and proceedings.

At the 60th Session of the CND, the CND Blog will be run in collaboration with Transform Drug Policy Foundation, the International Centre for Science in Drug Policy and Youth RISE.
