Second Roadmap Activity for Zambia

ATT-OP II

Event date: 28/11/2018 - 29/11/2018

On 28 – 29 November 2018 the Second Roadmap Activity for Zambia under the second phase of the EU Arms Trade Treaty Outreach Programme (ATT OP II) was conducted in Siavonga, Zambia. The event focused on the development of the national transfer control legislation and the harmonization of the ATT implementation with further international agreements and treaties. Further topics were regional cooperation and the establishment of a transit licensing system.

 

The event kicked-off with discussions on the state of the art of the national legislation and the control list, facilitated by a presentation from the national focal point. The discussion was further supported by a representative of Nigeria who also offered a short presentation on the national ATT implementation in his country, also mentioning the main challenges.

 

Based on the request of the Zambian stakeholders, the second session of the event focussed on the harmonization of the ATT with further international treaties such as the UN Programme of Action and the Firearms Protocol. An expert from the NGO Saferworld provided a short overview on the relevant treaties for Zambia. Afterwards he provided more detailed information on the most relevant documents and explained their connections to the ATT.

 

The second day started with a session on licensing for transit cases. Due to its location, Zambia is considered as a transit country. A presentation including a case study was designed to sensitize the audience for the problem and to discuss possible measures.

 

The objective of the session on regional cooperation was to present examples on how regional cooperation platforms function and to show what levels of information exchange could be necessary among countries of a region.
The event in Siavonga was supported by ATT experts from Nigeria, Ghana, Hungary and New Zealand.
