Programme Description 

UNCCT’s Programme on Preventing and Responding to WMD/CBRN Terrorism seeks to advance Member States’ and International Organizations understanding of the level of this threat. It also supports their prevention, preparedness and response efforts at their request. Through this Programme, the Centre seeks to strengthen partnerships to contribute to existing capacity-building efforts of the international community. 

Programme Courses 

UNCCT provides capacity-building support, focusing on areas such as border and export control, strategic trade control, illicit trafficking, protection of CBRN materials and critical infrastructure, incident response and crisis management, and CBRN forensics, among others. In 2021, the Programme launched 20 capacity-building training courses aiming to increase the capabilities of Member States in targeted CBRN areas. The courses are available upon request (oct-cbrnuncct@un.org).
