The world drug problem and sustainable development

From illicit cultivation and production to trafficking and use, the world drug problem, with all its ramifications, is intertwined with a vast array of social, economic and environmental issues. This exerts great pressure on development efforts, which in turn have an influence on the drug problem. Interventions made in response to the drug problem themselves generate further interplay with the broader development and social context and introduce additional, sometimes unforeseen, complexity to this dynamic. The importance of this interaction is increasingly being recognized by the international community, as reflected in the discussions on the Sustainable Development Goals and the special session of the General Assembly on the world drug problem held in 2016.
