We support civil society organizations in engaging with the United Nations (UN).
Since its formation in 1984, the NYNGOC has provided a platform for discussion of drugs and related matters and served as an interface with the UN for collaborating on solutions to global drug issues.
The NYNGOC operates under the umbrella of the Conference of NGOs in Consultative Relationship with the UN (CoNGO) and represents more than 100 civil society organizations. While global in scope, the NYNGOC’s membership is focused on the Americas—North America, Latin America, and the Caribbean. The NYNGOC collaborates closely with other NGO committees, especially our sister committee, the Vienna NGO Committee on Drugs (VNGOC).

Created in 1984, the New York NGO Committee on Drugs (NYNGOC) has a long history of participation in high-level meetings around drugs.
The New York NGO Committee on Drugs (NYNGOC) was established in 1984.
In June 1987, the NYNGOC organized an international forum with the VNGOC in conjunction with the 1987 International Conference on Drug Abuse and Illicit Trafficking.
In 1994, the NYNGOC participated in the organization of the NGO World Forum on Drug Demand Reduction held in Bangkok.
In 1998, the NYNGOC, along with the VNGOC, coordinated an “NGO Village” during the UN General Assembly Special Session (UNGASS) on Drugs.
The NGO Village was a diverse gathering of NGOs resulting in a vibrant exchange of ideas and from which six NGO representatives with diverse points of view were chosen to address the General Assembly.
In 2008/2009, in the NGO forum known as “Beyond 2008” which preceded the High-Level Meeting on Drugs held in Vienna in 2009, the NYNGOC also played a role in both the July 2008 forum and the nine regional consultations leading up to it.
In preparation for the 2016 United Nations General Assembly (UNGASS), the NYNGOC and VNGOC established a formally recognized Civil Society Task Force (CSTF).
Working closely with the VNGOC, the NYNGOC relaunched the CSTF in 2018 to ensure meaningful engagement by the global community of NGOs and communities impacted by drugs and drug related issues in the lead up to, and during, the 2019 Ministerial Segment.
