This letter was published and delivered to Ghada Waly on March 17th 2022. Written by SSDP International in collaboration with SSDP (US). Signed by over 60 civil society organisations, the letter raised key issues on the transparency and accessibility of the Youth Forum and provided recommendations on how the organisation, as well as member states, can improve their mechanisms to be more inclusive of youth perspectives. These recommendations were also reiterated by Iulia Vatau, the SSDP United Nations Global Fellow, who made a statement to the main session of the Commission on Narcotic Drugs the following day.

The first edition of "Drug Policy Reform at the United Nations: A Youth Advocacy Handbook" (2020) was originally authored by Orsi Fehér and edited by Róisín Downes.

Traditionally a core resource to the training of SSDP members participating at the Commission on Narcotic Drugs (CND), the Handbook provides an accessible introduction to the workings of UN institutions and ways civil society can get involved in decision making. From tips and tricks for inside and outside track advocacy to key action alerts, the Handbook has been the starting point for every SSDPer willing to venture into the ups and downs of international drug policy.

Through this Response, we offer some key suggestions and insights that would help to strengthen the utility of the report as a policy-informing document for member states and advocates alike. Particularly, the Response looks in-depth at young people and cannabis risk perceptions, the distinction between legal and illegal markets, as well as harm reduction services during the pandemic. While we hold in high regard the commitment of the international community towards these key themes, we hope that our observations add much-needed nuance to the conversation.

In December of 2020, SSDP International was formally recognised by the Austrian Government as a civil society organisation. The activities detailed throughout this report span the time period June 2019 to June 2020 - during this time SSDP International was named the Global Program as part of SSDP Foundation (headquartered in Washington D.C). SSDP International has been set up as an independent organisation to SSDP Foundation to duly support the SSDP Networks outside of the United States & in the international advocacy space.

We are more dedicated than ever to fostering the SSDP Movement across the world.

We would like to thank SSDP Foundation, in particular, Rachel Wissner & Luis Montoya, for their endless support and guidance leading up to and throughout the founding of SSDP International. We would also like to thank Jake Agliata for his unwavering commitment and support for the international movement of young drug policy reformers.
