The objective of this seminar is to compare the findings on innovative tools for the prevention of problematic cocaine use patterns, with experiences with harm reduction measures for stimu­lants in other regions of world, in particular those with a long trajectory of problematic stimu­lant uses such as North America (crack cocaine/methamphetamine), South East Asia (meth­amphetamine) and Latin America (cocaine base paste also known as paco, bazuco or crack).

The seminar will be guided by the Chatham House rule and aims to be an open-minded ex­change of opinions and experiences of policy officials and non-governmental experts in the field. The sessions below will be introduced shortly by a relevant participant (about 10 minutes each), Q&A and further debate.
