Building capacity to identify and respond to threats from chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear substances (CBRN CoE Project 23)
This project aims to train staff on international procedures and standards to build capacities for identifying and responding to threats from chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear substances. The target countries for this project are Albania, Cambodia, Iraq, Moldova, Senegal and Tunisia.
The project is part of the EU Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear Risk Mitigation Centres of Excellence (CoE) Initiative. This EU initiative is jointly implemented by the European Commission’s Joint Research Centre (JRC) and the United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute (UNICRI) under the aegis of the European Commission’s Directorate General (DG) for Development and Cooperation – EuropeAid (DEVCO) and the European External Action Service (EEAS).
As a part of the EU Instrument for Stability, the CoE initiative aims to facilitate regional cooperation and enhance CBRN policies and capabilities by creating a network of regional initiatives that promote and support the development and implementation of a CBRN policy. This will include sharing and use of CBRN capabilities, developing guidelines and sharing good practices, and identifying, collecting, analyzing and deploying resources to respond to the needs identified by partner countries.
