International Narcotics Control Strategy Report - 2001 [Released March 1, 2002]   [open pdf - 7MB]

"In attempting to evaluate whether countries and certain entities are meeting the goals and objectives of the 1988 UN Drug Convention, the [State] Department has used the best information it has available. The 2002 INCSR covers countries that range from major drug producing and drug-transit countries, where drug control is a critical element of national policy, to small countries or entities where drug issues or the capacity to deal with them are minimal. The reports vary in the extent of their coverage. For key drug control countries, where considerable information is available, we have provided comprehensive reports. For some smaller countries or entities where only sketchy information is available, we have included whatever data the responsible post could provide. The country chapters report upon actions--including plans, programs, and, where applicable, timetables--toward fulfillment of Convention obligations. […]. Information concerning counternarcotics assistance is provided, pursuant to section 489(b) of the [Foreign Assistance Act (FAA)], in sections entitled 'FY 2001-2002 Fiscal Summary and Functional Budget' and 'Other USG Assistance Provided.' Major Illicit Drug Producing, Drug-Transit, Significant Source, Precursor Chemical, and Money Laundering Countries Section 489(a)(3) of the FAA requires the INCSR to identify: (A) major illicit drug producing and major drug-transit countries, (B) major sources of precursor chemicals used in the production of illicit narcotics; or (C) major money laundering countries."
