Motion text

That this House recognises the need for collective international action to tackle the scourge of illicit drug production, trafficking and consumption; applauds the Colombian government's Shared Responsibility initiative, which highlights the need to tackle cocaine abuse by both consuming and producing countries; further notes that cocaine consumption throughout the world causes devastation in Colombia's economy; further applauds the success of the Alternative Development Programme, which offers coca farmers an alternative livelihood; notes the success of Colombian eradication, which in 2005 eradicated 170,000 hectares of coca, and seized 168.5 tonnes of cocaine, the largest seizure in six years; and urges the Government and the governments of other European states to build on the Shared Responsibility initiative to pursue such solutions internationally, with particular reference to Afghanistan.

COLOMBIA'S SHARED RESPONSIBILITY CAMPAIGN (Amendment 1)
leave out from `consumption;' to end and insert `notes that US State Department figures show an increase in coca cultivation in Colombia from 114,000 hectares to 144,000 hectares in 2005, the most recent year for which figures are available; further notes the social and environmental impact of aerial fumigation and the Cartagena Declaration of NGOs and social organisations of September 2003, which criticised the fumigation programme for its toxic footprint and leaving the soil infertile in the Amazon basin; further notes the international controversy caused between Ecuador and Colombia due to fumigation on their shared border; and believes that the eradication of coca in Colombia could be best achieved by diverting the huge sums of cash that go into aerial fumigation into manual eradication and crop alternatives for peasant farmers.'.
