CND Thematic Discussions 2024

November 12 @ 10:00 am November 14 @ 6:00 pm CET

The Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND) will hold thematic discussions 12-14 November 2024. The meeting is part of the multi-year workplan developed by Member States as a follow up the 2024 mid-term review of the 2019 Ministerial Declaration.

This year’s discussions will cover the following topics:

  • both the range of drugs and drugs markets are expanding and diversifying;
  • the abuse, illicit cultivation and production and manufacture of narcotic drugs and psychotropic substances, as well as the illicit trafficking in those substances and in precursors, have reached record levels, and that the illicit demand for and the domestic diversion of precursor chemicals are on the rise;
  • synthetic opioids and the non-medical use of prescription drugs pose increasing risks to public health and safety, as well as scientific, legal and regulatory challenges, including with regard to the scheduling of substances;

An open call for civil society speakers will be issued in early September.
