CNDblog is an initiative of the International Drug Policy Consortium in partnership with YouthRISE. Our objective is to ensure transparency in the annual deliberations of the UN Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND).
CND is the UN body tasked with overseeing global drug policy. However, despite this important mandate, its meetings are not webcast, nor are minutes or summary records made available to the public. The final reports of the meetings are extremely limited. The CND never votes, so it is difficult to find out what position your government has taken on key issues. CNDblog is an attempt to fill this gap, and provide an objective record of the debates and decisions rendered during the meeting.
Blogging will commence on Monday 11thMarch 2013. Be sure to check back often, as updates will occur by the hour throughout the Commission’s meeting.
