Guide to CND
To support NGO and CSO participation in and engagement with the Commission, the VNGOC has prepared a detailed Guide with information about the Commission and how it operates; information about NGO participation in the Commission and suggestions on how they can engage most effectively with its work (even if they cannot be present in Vienna); practical information; useful links and contacts. Download the VNGOC Guide to CND 2017 here.
We would like to invite you to the side event 60th Session of the Commission on Narcotic Drugs of the United Nations on Civil Society and International Drug Policy in the Context of Agenda 2030, to be held Friday 17th March, 14:20 – 15:10 at conference room M3 (Vienna International Centre).
These are the main events with VNGOC involvement, and we hope those of you in Vienna will join us for these meetings. We will of course keep you updated if there are any changes.
