Second Pilot Training Course on the Implementation of the ATT
The ATT Network organized the second pilot professional training course on the implementation of the ATT in Geneva, which was opened to officials from French-speaking countries that had signed the ATT. It offered an opportunity to review the obligations contained in the ATT, prepare for its entry into force, and assess the implications of its implementation for States Parties, in particular in establishing control lists for exports and imports or conventional arms as well as regulation of transit, transshipment, and brokering. Some focus was also made on international cooperation in preventing or fighting the diversion of licit arms trade to illicit markets.
The ATT Network was launched in September 2013 by the Geneva Forum and GCSP. Since May 2015, it is composed of: the Centre on Conflict, Development and Peacebuilding (CCDP), the GCSP, Small Arms Survey, and UNIDIR. It acts as a platform to exchange information, elaborate and provide practical guidance on ATT implementation, build related capacities and implementation resources, develop networks among implementation actors and communities, and help states preparing for ATT follow-up meetings. The Network is inclusive, informal, and works through activities such as thematic public meetings, training workshops, working group discussions, and the production of implementation guidelines.
