Throughout this response, the Paradigma Youth Coalition wishes to highlight the significant progress that has been made by the international community, whilst equally providing youth-informed insights on ways the WDR could further enhance the provision of meaningful data and representation of young people that could, in turn, better advise governments, international bodies and civil society moving forward.


This response also highlights the welcomed focus on the inequalities exacerbating health problems associated with drug use, the intersecting harms of drug policy responses on the environment and on those impacted by conflict and crime, the illicit supply innovations being used by producers and manufacturers, and a focus on the shifting policies worldwide. We respond to these highlights with recommendations on how to better frame these topics and explain the impact of these topics on young people, from young people.
