CITIES’ ACTIVE STANCE AGAINST MISUSE OF NARCOTIC DRUGS IS VITAL IN ORDER TO PREVENT ESCALATION OF DRUG PROBLEMS.
Has your city joined?
 
The criteria for joining are simple: a decision from the Municipality to join, signing of the ECAD Declaration, and payment of the annual membership fee based on the number of inhabitants.

What does ECAD do for your municipality and for the international drug control policy?

To achieve equal and uniform standards and to add transparency to the system with reduced membership fees, the Plenary session in Moscow, May 2013, granted the Advisory Board the authority to put a new model in place starting with the 2014 fees. According to the above mentioned, the Advisory Board decided to update ECAD member city fees from the year 2014. The new system is based on financial capacity, where cities/regions in Northern and Western Europe pay 100%, and cities/regions in Eastern and Southern Europe pay 50%. This does, however, not include cities/regions in Eastern and Southern Europe with more than two million inhabitants.

Furthermore, cities/regions in Eastern and Southern Europe can, on a written application to the ECAD Office, apply for a further reduction down to 50% of their actual fee, except cities/regions with more than two million inhabitants.
