Pompidou Group launches cooperation project in Belarus

At its launching meeting in Minsk on 18-19 February 2020, Pompidou Group discussed activities for a new cooperation project in the Republic of Belarus on fighting drug abuse and drug trafficking with the ministries of Interior, Health, Education and Labour as well as law enforcement agencies. The project is implemented as part of the Council of Europe Action Plan for Belarus 2019-2021. It addresses the challenges related to perceived trends of increased drug use and trafficking affecting the territory of Belarus, through providing human rights and drug policy expertise, opportunities to intensify cooperation with other European countries and technical assistance both on the demand and supply reduction sides.
