Countries need to agree what have been described as more "granular" goals on combating illegal drugs.

The call comes in a report from the United Nations University called "What Comes After the War on Drugs – Flexibility, Fragmentation or Principled Pluralism?"

It's designed to serve as a starting point for discussion at next year's General Assembly Special Session on the World Drug Problem (UNGASS) in April.

Matthew Wells spoke to one of the co-authors of the report, Dr James Cockayne, United Nations University's head of office in New York.
