Contribution of INCB to the High Level Review


The International Narcotics Control Board (INCB) wishes to announce that on the occasion of the high-level review by the Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND) of the progress made in the implementation by Member States of the Political Declaration and Plan of Action, 13-14 March 2014 and in view of the special session General Assembly on the world drug problem to be held in 2016, INCB has prepared an e-Publication "Contribution of the International Narcotics Control Board to the high-level review of the implementation by member Sates of the Political Declaration and Plan of Action on International Cooperation towards an Integrated and Balances Strategy to Counter the World Drug Problem", which comprises excerpts from the INCB annual reports from 2009 to 2012, as a contribution to this important process. 

The e-Publication highlights the critical issues faced in addressing the world drug problem, as well as major challenges faced by State Parties and the international community in complying with the international drug control treaties. In its annual reports, INCB makes recommendations addressed to Governments and international and regional organizations with a view to improving implementation of the treaties. Thus, this publication includes a selection of elements that are key to ensuring availability of controlled substances for medical and scientific purposes while preventing illicit drug manufacture, trafficking and abuse. The e-Publication will soon be available in all six UN languages here.
