Off track: Shadow report for the mid-term review of the 2019 Ministerial Declaration on drugs
The 2019 Ministerial Declaration on drugs laid down the main objectives of the international community in addressing the world drug situation for a 10-year period. As we are reaching the mid-way point of this period, and drawing on a broad range of data and evidence, as well as on the experience of civil society and communities, this report shows that by 2023 there has been little, incomplete or no progress in achieving these goals.
