Commission On Narcotic Drugs (CND)

The Commission on Narcotic Drugs was established by ECOSOC Resolution 9(1) of 1946 to advise the Council and prepare draft international Agreements on all matters relating to the control of narcotic drugs. The CND is the central policy making body within the United Nations System dealing with drug-related matters. The Commission has a normative segment, during which the Commission discharges its treaty-based and normative functions; and an operational segment, during which the Commission exercises its role as the governing body of the United Nations International Drug Control Programme (UNDCP).

The CND consists of 53 member states and its primary objective is to analyse the world drug situation and develop proposals to strengthen the international drug control system to combat world drug Problems through the International Narcotics Control Board (INCB). The secondary objective of the Commission is to review the implementation of the work Programme and to approve the budget of the UNODC.

The UN International Drug Control Programme:

  • Provides technical assistance and resources to member states to counter the drug Problem
  • Has joint regional offices with the Centre for Crime Prevention (ODCCP)
  • Main areas of support:
    • Policy support, legislation and advocacy
    • Prevention and reduction of drug abuse
    • Suppression of illicit drug trafficking

South Africa and the CND:

South Africa has signed all multilateral treaties dealing with Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances except the 1988 UN Drug Convention against Illicit Traffic in Narcotic Drugs and Psychotropic Substances.
