EU-ATT OP Senegal First Roadmap Activity
In the framework of the EU-ATT outreach programme, a seminar was organised seminar together with the National Commission on Small Arms and Light Weapons (COMNAT-ALPC) in Dakar, Senegal. The seminar focused on inter-agency cooperation and reporting. Experts from Burkina Faso, France, Germany and United Kingdom discussed with Senegalese experts all relevant issues concerning effective inter-agency cooperation and reports obligations which come with the ratification of the ATT-OP.
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 will support 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. 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. The project is implemented by BAFA and co-funded between the EU and the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany.
