VERTIC participates in workshop on ratification and implementation of the BWC in Nepal

Nepal, together with UNRCPD (UN Office for Disarmament Affairs through the Regional UN Centre for Peace and Disarmament in Asia and the Pacific) and the BWC Implementation Support Unit, organized a workshop on the national implementation of the Biological and Toxin Weapons Convention (BWC). The workshop was held in Kathmandu from 20 to 21 February 2014. It was covered by The Himalayan Times on 19 February 2014.
The workshop formed part of the BWC Action, a programme of the ‘European Union Council Decision in Support of the BWC’, which aims to support the BWC on the international, regional and national levels through three major projects, namely universality and national implementation; confidence in compliance; and strengthening international cooperation and encouraging international discussion on the future of the BWC. As part of the expert team, VERTIC presented on ratification and national implementation of the BWC in the domestic legal order and will participate in an upcoming legislative drafting workshop for the BWC in Nepal.
