First Roadmap Activity for Zambia

First Roadmap Activity for Zambia

ATT-OP II

Event date: 23/05/2018 - 24/05/2018

On 23-24 May 2018, the First Roadmap Activity for Zambia under the second phase of the EU Arms Trade Treaty Outreach Project (ATT OP II) was conducted in Livingstone. In August 2017, Zambia became a new roadmap partner country and BAFA organized an Initial Visit to Lusaka in the following November. During this activity the joint roadmap for Zambia was developed and it will be implemented over the course of the next two years. The first roadmap activity mirrored some of the roadmap’s focal points.

In the opening ceremony, a representative of the Zambian Ministry of Defense, provided an overview on the current state of the art of the ATT implementation in Zambia. Then, the participants had an opportunity to discuss on its legal aspects of ATT implementation. This session was followed by contributions on the establishment of a national control list. Furthermore, the role of interagency committee which has been recently established was discussed.

The second day kicked-off with presentations on licensing and interagency cooperation, which were well received and led to lively debates among the Zambian stakeholders. During the second half of the day, the participants and experts discussed record keeping and reporting requirements for ATT State parties.

Throughout the activity, the experts’ team met a very interested and knowledgeable group of stakeholders and engaged in frank and fruitful discussions on the opportunities and challenges for Zambia in the implementation process.

The event in Livingstone was attended by 21 Zambian participants. BAFA was supported by ATT experts from Croatia, Ghana, Hungary and New Zealand.
