The "Democracy, Cities and Drugs" project is the alliance of a network of 300 European cities with organisations issued from 7 European networks of the civil society. This alliance aims to promote local and integrated responses to the drug phenomenon.
The project intends to support the creation of local partnerships and to set up a sustainable network of exchange of know-how.
Based on the lessons learned from the 1st Democracy, Cities & Drugs project (2005-2007), DC&D II has the objective to support EU cities with developing local, partnership based drug policies, involving the relevant stakeholders so that a coordinated, participative, targeted, and thus resource effective approach can be developed towards drug-related problems.
Euro-TC is responsible for the work package “Treatment Challenges”, which involves five partner cities and aims at developing guidelines of strategies that are best for each city on a local level.
