The 2018 results are released today in ‘Wastewater analysis and drugs — a European multi-city study’, an updated edition in the EMCDDA Perspectives on Drugs (POD) series. The POD includes an innovative interactive map and a chart-based tool allowing the user to look at geographical and temporal patterns and to zoom in on results per city and per drug. New resources available this year include ‘Frequently asked questions’ (FAQs) on wastewater-based epidemiology as well as a motion graphic aimed at those interested in setting up wastewater monitoring activities

A motion graphic explaining wastewater methodology is available in English (with sub-titles in: ES, DE, FR, IT, NL and PT) at
