Bafa organizes Initial Visit and Elaboration of the Roadmap of the European Union Partner-2-Partner Export Control Programme for Arms-ATT (EUP2P ATT) in Jamaica
As part of the EUP2P ATT project, the purpose of this meeting was to carry through an Arms Trade Treaty Outreach Program Initial visit. Consequently, a road map for the next months was drafted in close cooperation with Jamaica and the COARM program. Representatives of several ministries and authorities responsible for arms transfer controls met with EU colleagues from Hungary, the Netherlands and Slovenia to discuss the status of relevant legislation as well as possible priorities and challenges with regard to effective implementation of the ATT.
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.
