Task 3 – Capacity building & knowledge exchange

Task 3 of DEEP SEAS will provide a common approach and methodology to support European Member States in knowledge gathering, sharing best practice and capacity building for evidence-based alcohol policy and harm-reduction across multiple sectors, adopting a health in all policies approach.

For this end, the project will elaborate evidence-based briefing documents and organise multi-sectoral thematic workshops for knowledge exchange and capacity building, focusing on 5 specific policy topics related to alcohol:

  1. Marketing and advertising.
  2. Taxation of alcohol, and other pricing mechanisms.
  3. Agriculture policies and support mechanisms.
  4. Inequalities.
  5. Alcohol consumption and nutrition/caloric intake.

Watch this space for updates on:

– Dates of Thematic Workshops on alcohol policy topics

– Opportunities to contribute to the agendas and policy areas for discussion in each topic through the DEEP SEAS Mapping Exercise.
