GPDPD on behalf of BMZ has organized jointly with UNODC and the Mae-Fah-Luang-Foundation a Side Event to „Broadening the scope of alternative development“ during the 60th Commission of Narcotic Drugs (CND), currently taking place in Vienna. The event was outstandingly well-visited. Speakers from the Mexican and Colombian Government as well as from Germany and Thailand discussed the new chapter of the UNGASS outcome document about Alternative Development which opens its traditional scope of rural development towards urban settings.
The research branch of the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) presented a Global Overview of Alternative Development to the United Nations (UN) Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND) on 17 October 2019.
What is Sustainable Alternative Development (AD) and how does it transform the life of people in drug crop cultivating communities? The Mae Fah Luang Foundation with support of the Global Partnership on Drug Policies and Development explains how the AD approach can diversify livelihood opportunities to help impoverished and marginalised communities to thrive. AD puts people and their needs at the centre and offers a holistic solution to address the root causes of illicit drug crop cultivation while fostering sustainable development in balance with the environment.
