Activity description

As part of the EUP2P ATT project, the purpose of the final roadmap activity for Jamaica was to wrap up the topics discussed in separate groups (enforcement, legal and licensing) over the past 14 months, Jamaican and European colleagues came together for this final exercise in a joint meeting. This activity gathered participants from all agencies involved in arms transfer controls, focused on practical implications for Jamaica of the new draft CARICOM Model Law on Conventional Arms Trade as well as the ATT in general. At the same time, a team of practitioners from Albania, Germany, Hungary, the Netherlands and the United Kingdom discussed licensing and enforcement related issues brought up over the course of the last year.

Project description

The goal of the European Union Partner-to-Partner (EU P2P) Export Control Programme for Arms-ATT, formerly referred to as the EU ATT Outreach Project (EU ATT-OP), 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 controls 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 P2P 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 Germany.
