Chemical, Biological, Radiological and Nuclear (CBRN) Risks Mitigation in the context of Combatting Terrorism
The side-event is aimed at enhancing awareness of the current and possible future chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear (CBRN) related threats, including terrorism. Technological developments in particular will be taken into account.
Improving global capacity to prevent, detect, and respond to CBRN related threats by conducting activities that strengthen the procedures, and interoperability of relevant international mechanisms will be addressed by the participants of the side event.
The side event will, in this context, showcase how the best practices developed by the European Union CBRN Risk Mitigation Centres of Excellence Initiative, as promoted and enhanced by the United Nations Group of Friends of CBRN Risk Mitigation and Security Governance, can serve as a model for adopting best practices in other areas of security governance. Organised by the UN Group of Friends of CBRN Risk Mitigation and Security Governance and United Nations Interregional Crime and Justice Research Institute (UNICRI).
