Local government is a key setting for the prevention of alcohol and other drug problems and harms. But do local councils have the scope and power to influence the way in which alcohol is sold, purchased and consumed within their borders?
Sharing responsibility, is the latest edition of the Australian Drug Foundation’s PolicyTalk series. It highlights opportunities for all three tiers of government to work together to develop more powerful alcohol-harm reduction interventions.
PolicyTalk is a quarterly online publication that provides an overview of topical debates to help senior policy makers find the right solutions for the community on alcohol and other drug issues.
