Senior Legal Officer Sonia Drobysz and Legal Officer Cédric Apercé participated in a legislative drafting workshop for the implementation of the Biological Weapons Convention (BWC) in Accra, Ghana, on 23-26 October 2017.

Chaired by Mr Ampofo – Chief Research Scientist at the Council for Scientific & Industrial Research – the workshop had the objectives of drafting a bill for national implementation of the BWC in Ghana, and to launch a consultative interministerial process for the bill’s development and ultimate adoption.

The workshop was made possible through funding from the Bureau of International Security and Nonproliferation of the US Department of State, and followed the BWC Implementation Review Exercise concluded in 2016 in which Ghana participated.
