The failed drug on War in the Americas
Since 2011, the team at KeenTO has worked on several projects in Latin America that looked at effective solutions for effective drug policies. While governments around the world have focused on punitive measure, private sector companies have found the space to innovate and implement business solutions. KeenTO is currently working on projects that supports communities in the implementation of fair business solutions.
KeenTO also collaborates with international organizations in support of better public policies. Through this website we provide information about new researches and projects that have been implemented.
