The aim of the project is to reduce threat coming from illicit or criminal use of chemical substances having dual-use nature. The project objective is to share and introduce good practices, improve procedures close gaps and rise level of awareness for institutions manufacturing, using or handling chemicals with hazardous properties or their precursors. The method used to attain the objective is to invite local institutions competent and interested in the subject matter into partnership, define the goals and means during thematic workshops and assist in creation of a network capable of achieving the goals and sustaining the activities by entering, in the next stages, into partnership with UNICRI and EU institutions in the accomplishing the fundamental goal.

We are looking for the potential partners in the region of Caucasus to carry out the task. There are no principal limitations to the field of activity of the partners.
