  • UNDCP: Drug Nexus in Africa
    The study is meant to serve three purposes. Firstly, it provides a stronger empirical basis on which UNDCP itself can develop and refine its policy and operational involvement in the region. Secondly, it serves as an information resource available to Governments. Thirdly and most importantly, it advances the policy dialogue on the illicit drug problem by highlighting the fact that the drug problem is not a self-contained phenomenon in and of itself, but that illicit activity both originates in, and has an impact upon, the process of human development.
