The EMCDDA has reshaped the way in which it reports on Europe’s drugs problem. In May 2013, the agency presented its annual overview of the European drug situation in a new information package designed to be ‘more timely, interactive and interlinked’. Central to the package is the European Drug Report 2013: Trends and developments. Accompanying the report are Perspectives on drugs (PODs), online interactive analyses providing deeper insights into a selection of important issues. The information package is completed by the annual Statistical bulletin and Country overviews which offer national-level data and analysis. This brochure provides an overview of the 2013 European Drug Report package and includes brief descriptions of the PODs.
