Take Global Civil Society Survey to Help UN Prepare for Special Session on Drugs

As part of preparation for the United Nations General Assembly’s Special Session (UNGASS) on drugs in April 2016, non-governmental organizations (NGOs) are being asked to participate in a survey.

The Special Session, to be held April 19-21, 2016, is a significant opportunity to hold a global, in-depth discussion on drugs.

With the support of the United Nations, the Vienna NGO Committee on Drugs and the New York NGO Committee on Drugs joined forces to launch the Civil Society Task Force for the UNGASS 2016. The task force is designed to secure civil society engagement and coordination in order to effectively include NGO voices in the UNGASS.
