Part Seven of the webinar series - 'A World with Drugs: Legal Regulation through a Development Lens'.
Global drug control has had devastating impacts on the environment. Enforced crop eradication, deforestation, and major disruption to ecosystems are all common consequences of the so called ‘war on drugs’. In this webinar, we explore how the legal regulation of drugs could provide an opportunity to reduce the destruction of finite resources and instead allow the trade to adopt practices of cultivation and production that conserve and protect the environment?
An exciting line-up of speakers will be announced shortly.
This webinar will be in English, we are exploring options for live Spanish translation.
2 December, 16:30-18:00 BST.
London – 15:30-17:00, Bogota – 11:30-12:00, New York, 10:30-12:00, Johannesburg – 17:30-19:00, Delhi – 21:00-22:30.
This webinar is part of a wider series exploring why the socially just legal regulation of drugs is vital for sustainable development. We will explore how drug policies intersect with some of the most pressing issues facing the development sector, and identify how to make sure legally regulated drug markets work for people along the supply chain.
