EU-ATT Outreach Project II - First Roadmap Activity in Cameroon

Activity description

As part of the second phase of the EU-ATT Outreach Project (EU-ATT OP II), Expertise France organized the first roadmap activity under the second project phase in Cameroon on 18-19 July 2018. The workshop provided an opportunity to review the secondary legislation, Cameroon's ‘Loi n°2016/015 du 14 Décembre 2016 portant régime général des armes et munitions au Cameroun’, which was at the final stage prior to adoption. International experts from France, Belgium and Sweden and representatives from various Cameroonian administrations and agencies discussed issues affecting the security environment of Cameroon and its neighbouring countries, and the wider region focusing on legislative and operational approaches to arms transfers controls.

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.
