Regional Expert Engagement
The Project 46 team are working closely with the region’s CBRN CoE National Focal Points and Regional Secretariat to involve a number of CBRN experts from the region to act as project implementers for Project 46. These regional experts will form part of the project team, working in partnership with the implementers to ensure that national and regional interests are fully integrated into the development and delivery of the project.
An additional benefit of this approach will be the sustainability of the project through these regional experts, once the project itself concludes.
