This report presents supply and demand statistics and analyses on the evolution of the global illicit drug problem, thus allowing for an objective and up-to-date assessment of the world drug situation. The report is divided into two parts. The first deals with trends in illicit drug production, trafficking and consumption, while the second provides the statistics on which the globally aggregated estimates and trends are based. Most of the information included in this report comes from data extracted from the annual report questionnaire (ARQ) sent by governments to the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) in 2002 and from supplementary documents prepared by various sources.

Executive summary

This summary presents, first, an analysis of the main illicit markets for heroin, cocaine, cannabis and amphetamine-type stimulants (ATS); and secondly synthesizes the main trends in illicit drug production, trafficking and consumption. The analysis of the main illicit markets focuses on the period between 1998 and 2003 since the international community is presently reviewing progress in achieving the targets set at the twentieth special session of the General Assembly (UNGASS) in 1998. The illicit drug production, trafficking and consumption trends focus on 2001/2002, updating last year’s edition of the present publication.
