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.
