Healy, Grainne (1997) Drugs, poverty and community development: a report of the conference for Community Development Programme projects on community responses to drugs issues held in February 1997. Dublin: Community Development Programme .

The Community Development Programme (CDP) was established in 1990 in recognition of the role of community development in tackling poverty and disadvantage. The CDP provides financial assistance to projects towards the staffing and equipping of local resource centres which provide a focal point for community development activities in the area and to other specialised community development projects and initiatives which have a strategic importance. In February 1997 the CDP held a two-day conference to share experiences and discuss current responses to drug use and to explore possible roles of projects in the process of tackling drugs in their communities. The conference also gave an opportunity to examine policy implications of drug use, specifically the implications of the recently published "First Report of the Ministerial Task Force on Measures to Reduce the Demand for Drugs". This book outlines the conference presentations, workshops, models of response and recommendations for policy and practice.
