Background

Activity description
As part of the ‘EUP2P export control programme for arms-ATT’ (EUP2P-ATT), the ad hoc assistance activity for Zambia took place in Lusaka on 22-23 March 2017. Based on the outcomes of the first seminar in 2016, this event aimed to further support the implementation of the ATT in Zambia. During the seminar updates were provided on the current national implementation of the ATT in the country. Furthermore, participants and experts engaged in discussions about controlled transfers, end use verification as well as customs enforcement and illegal arms diversion in Southern Africa. An additional session was also dedicated to physical security and stockpile management. The organizers were supported by experts from Croatia, Ghana, Hungary, Slovenia and the United Kingdom.

Project description
The ‘EUP2P export control programme for arms-ATT’, also known as the EU ATT Outreach Project (ATT-OP), provided assistance to non-EU countries between April 2014 and April 2017 to contribute to the effective implementation of the ATT. The programme was co-financed by the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany under Council Decision 2013/768/CFSP. The programme assisted a number of non-EU countries, upon their request, in strengthening their arms transfer systems in line with the requirements of the Treaty and also engaged in an effort to reach out to countries not yet party to the Treaty.
