Supporting and Enhancing Chemical Non-Proliferation Instruments, Institutions, and Practices
Canada is supporting the Arms Control Association and the Chemical Weapons Convention Coalition (CWCC) to enhance and expand public awareness concerning the global importance of the Chemical Weapons Convention (CWC) and the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) to international peace and security by funding civil society participation in key meetings. Specific activities will include: 1) targeted outreach to NGOs, academia, and industry representatives and support to select candidates to attend the annual CWC conferences; 2) organizing side events and related meetings at the CWC conferences including “Open Forums,” a CWCC reception, and organizational meetings; 3) promoting “codes of conduct” and ethical guidelines for national CWC implementation; and 4) organizing plenary statements by NGO representatives, factoring in geographic and gender considerations. These efforts will increase public interest and awareness, both nationally and regionally, to build and sustain the global norm against existence and use of chemical agents and weapons by state or non-state actors.
