VERTIC co-organises with UNLirec a BWC/UNSCR 1540 seminar in Ecuador

VERTIC co-organised with UNLirec, the UN Disarmament Branch for Latin America and the Caribbean, a seminar on the implementation of the Biological Weapons Convention (BWC) and UNSCR 1540 related obligations. The meeting on 26 June was hosted by the Ministry of Defence in Quito and included representatives from several other Ministries,  two officials from UNLirec, an Expert from the UNSCR 1540 Committee Experts Group and VERTIC’s Legal Officer Rocio Escauriaza Leal.

The seminar looked at the international legal framework for non-proliferation, and at UNSCR 1540 and how it complements the BWC. VERTIC delivered several presentations on the BWC and how it functions, on national implementation measures for the BWC and on ways forward to strengthen implementation.
