From 14 to 22 March 2024, representatives of UN member states, international organizations and civil society will gather in Vienna – and in virtual events – for the annual UN Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND), hosted by the UN Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), and chaired this year by the Ghanaian Permanent Representative to the UN in Vienna.

The CND will negotiate resolutions and decisions aimed at enhancing implementation of the UN drug control conventions, and is planning, during a High Level Segment, to adopt a declaration representing a mid-term review of the 2019 Ministerial Declaration on ‘strengthening our actions at the national, regional and international levels to accelerate the implementation of our joint commitments to address and counter the world drug problem’.

The Global Initiative Against Transnational Organized Crime (GI-TOC) will be present and active at the CND throughout and will participate in a series of events during the week, to highlight our latest research on the dynamics and impacts of drug trafficking, and our activities supporting innovative, evidence-based and locally led responses to these challenges, including in our role as Secretariat of the Eastern and Southern Africa Commission on Drugs (ESACD).

The GI-TOC’s engagement at the UN on transnational organized crime has always been a key pillar of our work, and we are committed to contributing substantively to key debates involving organized crime in the multilateral forums, coordinating civil society support and expert engagement.
