Following up on the recent publication of a UNODC-UNESCO-WHO guidance document, this webinar will review and discuss the research and practice on programmes preventing substance abuse, including alcohol and tobacco. The webinar will be interactive, with remarks from several experts and practitioners, leading into a discussion among all attendees. Different aspects, effective strategies and challenges will be discussed. A series of findings from a recent review of research, reports and resources relevant to low resource countries, presented in the form of a mini-Delphi consultation, will be circulated and discussed as a backdrop and eventual product of the session and follow-up.
