In some instances, drug law enforcement efforts – especially where the military gets involved as a repressive tool against drug cultivators and traffickers – have tended to exacerbate insecurity and drug market-related violence. For more information, check the IDPC Drug policy Guide.

For the CND 2018 map, proxies were utilised. “New Paradigm” defines countries that manifested a preference for the primacy of the UNGASS Outcome Document; whilst “War on Drugs” defines countries that pronounced themselves for the extension of the 2009 Political Declaration and its targets.
