Aim of the project is to strengthen and enhance of protection and security measures for national CBRN Critical Infrastructure facilities and practices in the SEEE, CA and potentially MIE region partner countries in order to ensure minimization of any of Chemical, Biological or Radiological/ Nuclear hazard induced health consequences, human and economic losses following the violation of physical protection and security regimes on any of facilities of national CBRN Critical Infrastructure.

Geographical Scope: Albania, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Georgia, Northern Macedonia, Moldova, Montenegro, Serbia, Ukraine (SEEE Region), Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Mongolia, Pakistan, Tajikistan, Uzbekistan (CA region). Upon request, specific activities could be carried out in Lebanon and of Iraq.
