EUP2P ATT Outreach Project - First Roadmap Activity for Peru
Within the framework of the ATT Outreach Project II (ATT-OP II), BAFA carried the First Roadmap Activity for Peru in Lima on 16-17 July 2018. This two-day workshop analysed the state of play of the Peruvian weapons transfer system with regard to the implementation of the ATT and to evaluate the priorities for future cooperation. In addition, the expectations for the second phase of the project were analysed and an updated roadmap was prepared.
Finally, this two-day event provided a platform for the relevant national actors who are in charge of ATT implementation in Peru to evaluate the most appropriate methods to address challenges linked to the practical implementation of the Treaty. In addition, recommendations and best practices will be provided.
The goal of 'EU ATT Outreach Project (EU ATT-OP)', as part of the European Union Partner-to-Partner (EUP2P) Export Control Programme, is to support the 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. 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.
