For the first time since its conception, this year the World Drug Report consists of two products, a web-based element and a set of booklets. The latest global, regional and subregional estimates of and trends in drug demand and supply are presented in a user-friendly, interactive online segment. While Special points of interest include key takeaways and policy implications, booklet 1 takes the form of an executive summary based on analysis of the key findings of the online segment and the thematic booklet 2 and the conclusions that can be drawn from them. In addition to providing an in-depth analysis of key developments and emerging trends in selected drug markets, including in countries currently experiencing conflict, booklet 2 focuses on a number of other contemporary issues related to drugs.
A research brief titled the Drugs-Crime Nexus in the Amazon Basin, first published in the World Drug Report 2023, focuses on the countries affected by drug trafficking and related crime issues, hosting the largest share of the Amazon Basin rainforest- Brazil, Peru, Plurinational State of Bolivia and Colombia.
