IDPC and EHRN have been working together to develop a comprehensive Drug Policy Training Toolkit, which aims to build the capacity of civil society organisations around the world – helping them to understand, engage with, and influence drug policy making processes at all levels. It covers the areas of drug policy, civil society advocacy and harm reduction, and provides a broad menu of activities and content from which a facilitator can pick and choose the ones which best suit the context, audience and timeframe.

The Toolkit will be lauched at the 2013 International Harm Reduction Conference in Vilnius, and IDPC and EHRN will deliver a one-day ‘sample’ training event on Thursday 13th June.

The training will be in English, and there are around 20 places available for applicants from across the world. It will cover a selection of activities from all four modules of the Toolkit:
