EU and Georgia sign new working agreement on drugs and drug addiction monitoring


On 6 September, Georgia and the European Monitoring Centre for Drugs and Drug Addiction (EMCDDA) signed a Working Arrangement confirming their collaboration in the field of drugs and drug addiction.

The new document  will allow for knowledge transfer and capacity-building in the areas of drug monitoring and reporting and for the exchange of experience on health and social responses to drug problems (e.g. prevention, treatment, harm reduction and social integration).

The agreement will also help strengthen the Georgian National Drug Observatory, set up in 2020, and establish and develop a national early-warning system on new psychoactive substances (NPS).

Georgia is currently participating in two EU-funded projects on drugs: the bilateral technical cooperation project EMCDDA4Georgia (EMCDDA4GE), aimed at enhancing national responses to drug-related health and security threats, and EU4Monitoring Drugs (EU4MD).
