DAPC Grants 2014 in the context of the UNODC Youth Initiative

Since 1994, UNODC has received a contribution from the Drug Abuse Prevention Centre (DAPC) of Japan to support drug prevention activities by non - governmental organisation in low and middle income countries. Grants have been disbursed globally every year since. In 2012, the process was assigned to be managed by the Prevention, Treatment  and Rehabilitation section in the Drug Prevention and Health Branch. This project falls under the thematic programme of Addressing health and human development vulnerabilities in the context of drugs and crime.

The aim of the project is to strengthen the capacity of civil society to prevent drug abuse globally.

This Call for Proposals takes into consideration the importance of harnessing all available resources towards the implementation of activities aimed at meeting the objectives of this grants programme.
