The CFATF, on behalf of the Organization of American States (OAS), is pleased to refer you to the Multilateral Evaluation Mechanism (MEM) 7th Round National Evaluation Reports on Drug Policies 2019 of the OAS Member States. The MEM is a peer review process that measures the progress of the actions taken by the Organization of American States (OAS) Member States to address the drug problem and related crimes. The MEM evaluates member states’ implementation of the Inter-American Drug Abuse Control Commission (CICAD) Hemispheric Plan of Action on Drugs (2016-2020), which is aligned with the UNGASS 2016 goals and objectives and the United Nations 2030 Sustainable Development goals. The MEM process highlights strengths and weaknesses in its country reports and encourages national dialogue among policymakers.

The MEM 7th Round National Evaluation Reports on Drug Policies 2019 were officially released through social media. Click here to find the reports of the Caribbean countries published on the OAS CICAD website.
