COMING UP!>>Ep.80 | The World of Drug Policy, post-UNGASS (2), or a WADPN Perspective of World Drugs Day

Episode #80
(Season 4; Ep.15):  
The World of Drug Policy, post-UNGASS (2), or a WADPN Perspective of World Drugs Day

Season 4 is STILL on the theme of “making money for Africa”.

We commenced the Season unpacking the nitty-gritty of the Creative Economy, and concluded that Film, more than any other cog in the Creative Economy wheel, was probably the most dominant within that Economy.

In episode 2, we appreciated how, if managed properly, Sports could become the biggest employer in Ghana, the sub region, and the Continent.

In episode 3, we started to treat the all-important topic of customer service, concluding that, Ghana can achieve an “insanely customer-centric culture” as seen in the West, but it takes exposure and training of frontline staff to do that.

In episode 4, we concluded that East Africa continues to rise, while episode 5 helped demystify Africa’s agriculture under the AU’s flagship programme of CAADP, concluding that issues around Agribusiness and nutrition will dominate discussions around Agriculture after the 12th CAADP Partnership Platform meeting that was held in Accra mid-April.

In episode 6, we piggy-backed on the *UNCTAD E-Commerce week* that took place from 18-22 April in Geneva, concluding the show on Cyber-crime with the shocking conclusion that Ghana’s Cyber-awareness is at a shockingly low threshold.

Episode 7 saw us in a conversation with the West Africa Civil Society Institute for updates on latest activities, and publications, concluding that it was necessary to have a conversation about African philanthropy.

Episode 8 shone the spotlight on AfriTourism for the fourth time, concluding that the “Think Ghana, Think Cocoa” venture, which was unveiled at a Marketing competition at the University of Ghana Business School in April, needs immense support as it has put cocoa very significantly into conversations around tourism.

Episode 9 sought to unpack Model ECOWAS Summit that took place on ECOWAS Day – 28 May, 2016. Episode 10 was a reflective one on Africa Day, whereas episodes 11-13 have equally-been reflective.

In the fourth and final edition for the month of June, we continue to look into the future.
For the past two weeks, members of the Network have been involved in various activities in the run-up to the celebration of World Drugs Day, which was held last Sunday 26 June.

In this edition of the Show, we want to find out from members of the West Africa Drug Policy Network what activities they were involved in, and how these activities have helped both give visibility to the advocacy of #SupportDontPunish.

Finally, with this work done, what are some of the upcoming activities that members of the Public should watch out for?
