In 1999, the Commission presented a Communication on a European Union Action Plan to Combat Drugs (2000 – 2004). Based on this the Helsinki European Council endorsed the EU Strategy on Drugs for 2000-2004. The Strategy calls for a multidisciplinary and integrated approach to drugs where drug demand and supply reduction are seen as equally important and mutually reinforcing parts of a balanced strategy. In June 2000, the Feira European Council adopted the EU Action Plan on Drugs 2000-2004. This Action Plan translated the EU Drugs Strategy into approximately one hundred concrete actions to be taken by the Member States, the Commission, the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA) and Europol. The Action Plan states that the Commission should organise appropriate evaluations at mid-term and upon completion of the EU Drugs Strategy 2000-2004. In November 2002 the Commission presented a Communication on the mid-term evaluation. This Communication presents the results of the final evaluation and lays the foundation for the future evolution of EU drugs policy on the basis of the lessons learnt from the implementation of current policy.
