The Drug Policy Metrics Map

The CDPE has conducted an international cross-comparison of illegal drug policies to create an online tool – the Drug Policy Metrics Map.

The map demonstrates the alignment and gaps between the metrics that countries use to assess the success of their drug policy and the actual drug policy-related outcomes they experience.

There remains a range of approaches countries use to evaluate domestic drug policies. The Drug Policy Metrics Map allows users to comparatively assess how countries determine policy success or failure in this regard, while also providing access to United Nations datasets on country-level drug policy-related outcomes. We intend for this tool to help users identify evaluative approaches that support effective drug policies.
