EU-LAC SUMMIT — Action Plan — Final Declaration

6. The world drug problem

The objec­tive is to strength­en bi-region­al dia­logue and effec­tive­ness of joint efforts to tack­le the world drug prob­lem as iden­ti­fied and devel­oped in the frame­work of the EULAC Coor­di­na­tion and Coop­er­a­tion Mech­a­nism on Drugs in accor­dance with the prin­ci­ple of com­mon and shared respon­si­bil­i­ty through an inte­grat­ed and bal­anced approach and in con­for­mi­ty with inter­na­tion­al law. 

Work Pro­gramme:

* Dia­logue

a. Fur­ther devel­op and strength­en the EU-LAC Coor­di­na­tion and Coop­er­a­tion Mech­a­nism on Drugs.

b. Inten­si­fy our coop­er­a­tion in the frame­work of the Unit­ed Nations, notably with­in the Com­mis­sion on Nar­cot­ic Drugs to com­bat, among oth­er issues, drug traf­fick­ing car­ried out by orga­nized crime and crim­i­nal organizations. 

* Coop­er­a­tion activ­i­ties and initiatives

c. Sup­port the estab­lish­ment of EU-LAC net­works to share expe­ri­ences, know-how and best prac­tices to tack­le the world drug prob­lem, via pol­i­cy devel­op­ment and capac­i­ty build­ing such as the “COPOLAD” programme.

d. Strength­en region­al secu­ri­ty coop­er­a­tion struc­tures and fos­ter­ing region­al coop­er­a­tion in the fight against illic­it drugs and relat­ed crimes, in the Caribbean under the 10th EDF region­al programme.

e. Strength­en coop­er­a­tion against the diver­sion and illic­it traf­fick­ing of chem­i­cal precursors.

ebis Strength­en coop­er­a­tion against drug relat­ed mon­ey laun­der­ing. f. Pro­mote com­pre­hen­sive pre­ven­tion pro­grammes, health assis­tance, drug addic­tion and social treat­ment and social re-inte­gra­tion to reduce drug con­sump­tion and abuse.

g. Coop­er­ate on alter­na­tive devel­op­ment in regions where crops are cul­ti­vat­ed for the pro­duc­tion of illic­it drugs, includ­ing, as appro­pri­ate, pre­ven­tive alter­na­tive devel­op­ment, with an inte­grat­ed and sus­tain­able approach. Give due atten­tion to tech­ni­cal assis­tance, in rela­tion to the chain of pro­duc­tion and com­mer­cial­iza­tion of prod­ucts of alter­na­tive development.

h. Pro­mote ini­tia­tives to tack­le the con­se­quences of the world drug prob­lem on the envi­ron­ment, in accor­dance with nation­al policies.

i. Advance imple­men­ta­tion of com­mit­ments adopt­ed in the Polit­i­cal Dec­la­ra­tion and Plan of Action approved at the 52nd ses­sion of the CND held in 2009.
