EU Drugs Action Plan for 2009-2012


At its December 2004 meeting, the European Council adopted the EU drugs strategy 2005–12, covering an 8-year period. Two consecutive 4-year action plans were subsequently adopted: the EU drugs action plan 2005–08 and the EU drugs action plan 2009–12 (the subject of this page). This action plan is conceived around five priorities:

  • reducing the demand for drugs;
  • mobilising European citizens;
  • reducing supply;
  • improving international cooperation;
  • and improving understanding of the drugs phenomenon.
