WHAT: The Biological Weapons Convention (BWC) National Implementation Measures Database is a searchable, publicly accessible database containing information about the national implementation measures undertaken by BWC States Parties. The database is designed to strengthen the implementation of the BWC, allowing States Parties, Signatories, and other stakeholders to better understand different approaches to national implementation from around the world and identify possible gaps and limitations in BWC implementation.

As part of the development of the database, UNIDIR’s Weapons of Mass Destruction Programme and VERTIC’s National Implementation Measures Programme are organizing an online event to introduce the tool and showcase its structure and functions.

WHEN & WHERE: Wednesday, 31 May 2023 | 13.00 – 14.30h CEST | Online

PARTICIPANTS: We encourage the participation of State representatives and experts working on or interested in issues pertaining to the Biological Weapons Convention.
