Preparedness of States Parties to Prevent and Respond to Attacks Involving Biological Agents
This project will consist of training courses, tabletop exercises and/or national or sub-regional workshops for selected States Parties to examine cross-government decision making, and promote information exchange and provision of assistance between relevant national and international organisations in order to prevent and mitigate the risks and the impact of an attack involving biological agents. This will exercise and evaluate the national prevention of, preparedness for, and response to a biological incident and will increase awareness of possible measures to be taken to enhance the level of preparedness. This project will also include an initial expert workshop in Geneva to explore needs in relation to the implementation of Article VII of the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention (BWC) and to design activities to meet these needs.
