The Intergovernmental Committee on Drugs (IGCD) is developing the next stage of the National Drug Strategy on behalf of the Ministerial Council on Drug Strategy. A draft of the National Drug Strategy 2010-2015 has been developed based on an evaluation of the previous strategy and a round of consultations earlier this year.
Development of the Strategy represents a partnership between the Commonwealth Government, State and Territory governments, the non-government sector and the broader community. Public comment is now invited on the draft Strategy. These comments will be used to finalise a document that will steer Australia’s drug policy over the next five years.
You are encouraged to review the consultation draft and provide feedback to assist in the finalisation of the Strategy. The draft, as well as further information on how to be part of this consultation, is available at the National Drug Strategy website (www.nationaldrugstrategy.gov.au).
Submissions close at 8pm (AEDT), 10 December 2010.
