Activity description

As part of the ‘EUP2P export control programme for arms-ATT’ (EUP2P-ATT), the First Activity of the Cambodia Roadmap took place in Phnom Penh on 7-8 February 2018. Based on the discussions during the Initial Visit and the following assessment, the workshop provided an opportunity for the EU team of experts to review the main challenges with around 20 representatives from relevant Cambodian ministries and agencies. The workshop focussed on building capacity in establishing risk management systems, countering diversion, interagency cooperation and the reporting requirements under the ATT.

Project description

The goal of 'EU ATT Outreach Project' is to support the early entry into force and effective implementation of the ATT. Upon request, the project supports a number of States in strengthening their arms transfer control systems with a view to being able to implement the ATT. The project also aims to increase awareness and ownership of the ATT at national and regional levels and therein contribute to its universalisation. A second edition of the project was initiated on 29 May 2017 by Council Decision 2017/915 and it is co-implemented by BAFA and Expertise France. The EU ATT Outreach Project has three different components: 1) Tailored National Assistance Programmes; 2) Ad-hoc Activities; and 3) Regional Seminars. National assistance programmes are developed in close cooperation with partner countries. Key elements of national assistance programmes are: an initial needs assessment visit; inclusive roadmap development; and, practical support follow up activities.
