Second ATT Ad Hoc Seminar for Zambia

Event date: 22/03/2017 - 23/03/2017

On 22-23 March 2017, BAFA organized the second ad hoc seminar for Zambia in Lusaka, within the framework of the EU ATT Outreach project. This event was the last activity within the framework of the current programme. Based on the outcomes of the first seminar in 2016, the seminar aimed to further support the implementation of the ATT in Zambia.

 

On the day prior to the seminar, the team of experts had a meeting with the Zambian Minister of Defence, where they outlined the aims of the current project and the further plans for the cooperation with Zambia.

 

At the beginning of the seminar, a Zambian representative provided an update on the state of play of ATT implementation at national level. Afterwards, an expert from Ghana provided an example concerning the national ATT implementation in his home country and outlined the obligations for Zambia. The presentation was very well received by the participants. Subsequently, participants and experts engaged in discussions on controlled activities and transfers , end-use verification as well as customs enforcement and illegal arms diversion in Southern Africa. An additional session on physical security and stockpile management also triggered some interesting discussions.

 

In Zambia, the organizers were supported by experts from Croatia, Ghana, Hungary, Slovenia and the UK.
