‘It’s worrisome’: latest figures released by UN show ‘record high coca cultivation’

Coca cultivation hit a record high, increasing by 35 percent from 2020 to 2021, a UN report showed on Thursday, amid the emergence of new cocaine trafficking centers in southeastern Europe and Africa. By 2020, global production of cocaine has already reached approximately 2,000 tons. Chloe Carpentier, Head of Drug Research at the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC), joined FRANCE 24 to learn more about the record high supply of cocaine.
