Extraordinary sessions of the subsidiary bodies of the Commission on Narcotic Drugs Vienna (online), 20-24 September 2021

The pandemic situation remains volatile globally and intergovernmental meetings with cross-regional travel cannot be universally organized with in-person participation. Reservations at the regional commissions cannot currently be made and rules and regulations differ between countries.

In light of the continued COVID-19 pandemic and the resulting situation described above, the meetings of the subsidiary bodies of the Commission on Narcotic Drugs (HONEUROHONLAFHONLACHONLAP and Subcommission) will be organized in 2021 in a virtual format, as extraordinary sessions.
