Pompidou Group - Co-operation Group to Combat Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking in Drugs

"Evaluation of drug prevention : from dogma to useful tool"
Conference, Prague 30-31 March 2010

The meeting of 30-31 March in Prague was effective in identifying barriers and limitations in drug prevention evaluation. It came to the conclusion that drug prevention requires a comprehensive and long-term view, that more synergy is needed in implementing and evaluating drug prevention - for example, with other social problems and risky behaviour and that international transferability of prevention activities can be useful. During the following Prevention Platform meeting discussions focused on a planned publication on good practices in evaluation as well as a handbook on practical examples of organising prevention work in the recreational settings and in resort towns.
