Strengthening Export Controls and Border Security in the Americas and the Caribbean

This project assisted partner states to establish or enhance domestic controls, adopt effective laws and implement comprehensive measures to prevent the proliferation of CBRN weapons and their means of delivery. Tailored activities include national needs assessments, development of legislative application plans and the provision of requisite equipment, training and related technical assistance to strengthen national and regional capacity to prevent, detect and respond to CBRN incidents. The project also supported the development and/or enhancement of cargo targeting systems at select, high-volume Latin American and/or Caribbean ports of entry to strengthen capabilities to identify and track shipments of CBRN and other illicit goods and trade flows in and through the region. It also directly supported State Parties to the BWC to fulfill their national obligations, including by facilitating participation at BTWC Meetings (e.g. Meetings of Experts and States Parties) and convening BWC workshops and events.
