Responding to Deliberate Biological Events Project

This project provides decisions-makers with the necessary tools to better understand what a response to a deliberate biological event could entail. These tools include: the Stakeholders in a Deliberate Biological Event (DBE) tool which describes how a deliberate biological outbreak might unfold, including the stakeholders who would be involved in identifying, responding to, and recovering from the event; tabletop exercises to test questions of governance in response to DBEs; and the Georgetown Outbreak Activity Library (GOAL), which is an online platform that maps all activities and stakeholders involved in a response. The center also identified best practices and provided guidance to State Parties for requesting assistance and operationalizing Article VII of the Biological Weapons Convention (BWC).
