“ENHANCING GEORGIA’S CAPACITY TO COUNTER TARGETED WMD ASSASSINATION ATTEMPTS” - Phase I
GCSD has completed the first phase of the project aimed at strengthening Georgia’s CBRN security capacity.
Over the course of a year the project worked with the National CBRN Treat Reduction Commission of Georgia by offering capacity building to address the most up to date challenges. This component consisted of thematic lectures, experience sharing sessions, table-top and simulation exercises. With the support of Dr. Marc-Michael Blum tailor made sessions were offered to practitioners in the field of strategic communications to increase their crisis response capacity. Sessions covering detection and mitigation of CBRN related incidents were provided to first responders by Mr. Dan Kaszeta and were co-hosted by the Training Center of the State Security Service. The simulation training co-organised by the National Security Council of Georgia provided an important skill sharpening opportunity and concentrated on increasing interagency coordination capacity in keeping with the National CBRN Threat Reduction Strategy. As part of the project sustainable study materials were developed for the training center of the State Security Service.
The project is implemented with the support of the Office of Cooperative Threat Reduction of the State Department of the United States of America.
