The Global SMART Programme (Synthetics Monitoring: Analyses, Reporting and Trends)
The Global SMART (Synthetics Monitoring: Analyses, Reporting and Trends) Programme improves the capacity of targeted Member States to generate, manage, analyse, report and use information on illicit synthetic drugs. The SMART programme was launched in September 2008 in Bangkok.
Currently, the SMART Programme provides capacity-building to 11 countries in East and South-East Asia (Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, China, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Viet Nam). In January 2011, Global SMART expanded to Latin America.
To contribute to an improved understanding and effective assessment of the synthetic drugs situation and the patterns of their distribution and use, the Global SMART Programme publishes a number of research reports, shown below.
