Event organized by United Nations University.
As the UN General Assembly Special Session (UNGASS) on the World Drug Problem in April 2016 approaches, questions have arisen about what metrics might best evaluate drug policy. United Nations University will host a discussion organised by the International Centre for Science in Drug Policy (ICSDP) to launch its Open Letter from the Scientific Community on metrics and drug policy. The ICSDP is a network of scientists and academics from around the world committed to improving the health and safety of communities and individuals affected by illicit drugs, by working to inform illicit drug policies with the best available scientific evidence.
