This is the eighth annual report on Australian, State and Territory Governments’ progress under the National Drug Strategy 2004-2009 (NDS). The Intergovernmental Committee on Drugs (IGCD) is required to provide the Ministerial Council on Drug Strategy (MCDS) with an annual monitoring report on the implementation of the NDS.

This report provides an overview of the activities undertaken by all jurisdictions over the period 1 July 2006 to 30 June 2007, and presents a broad national view of the key drug related issues affecting Australia with a particular focus on the interventions undertaken by government agencies to reduce the supply, demand and harms associated with drug use across sectors.

The data provided in the Annual Report are largely descriptive. Given the multiplicity and complexity of factors affecting drug use in Australian society, caution is required in interpreting simple cause-and-effect relationships from the data.
