One Response to Drugs, Poverty and Development – Policy Solutions?

  1. Martin Drewry says:

    Please come along if you can – such an important issue, and 2016 is a massive year for it. Preparing now is key. All anti-poverty NGOs need to keep an eye on it – with those active on policy issues needing a lead contact person for it, so that they can be kept informed and get involved to the extent they can.
