A meeting was organized by the Regional Precursor Control Project for South and South West Asia, RAS H60 to review the progress made on goals relating to precursors agreed to at the 20th special session of the U.N.

UNGASS had called for significant progress towards reducing illicit drug production, trafficking and abuse worldwide within a ten-year time frame, i.e., by 2008.
At the 52nd session of the Commission on Narcotic Drugs to be held in March 2008, progress on UNGASS goals will be the subject of a thematic debate in preparation for the high level segment in 2009.
The project had earlier prepared and distributed a country wise status paper on precursor related UNGASS goals.
