Container Control Programme
CCP Challenges consist of decreasing the revenues of transnational organized crime groups and terrorist actors, deterring future trafficking operations, reducing costs for governments, improving the security, health, and economies of countries and its people and enhancing seaport/airport security to prevent misuse of critical infrastructure by criminal groups.
The mission of the CCP is to build capacity in countries seeking to improve risk management, supply chain security, and border management in seaports, airports, dry ports, rail terminals, and land border crossings to prevent the trafficking of illicit goods, organized crime, and terrorism, and strengthen trade facilitation. In doing so, the ultimate goal of the CCP is to enhance the health, security, and economic situation for people and countries around the world.
While the CCP is tailored to the specific needs of each country, the below steps explain the generic modus operandi for operationalizing and implementing the CCP :
• signing of a cooperation agreement with the country concerned;
• conduct of a technical needs assessment (with specific focus on the project site concerned) resulting in recommendations including suggested activities and a proposed timeline;
• establishment of a national steering committee as applicable for national ownership and commitment; policy and technical advice; and proper governance, management, and implementation of the CCP;
Attention is given to human rights and gender equality to ensure that women are promoted to suitable positions as appropriate. Moreover, the various components of the CCP's Women's Network are implemented. The CCP was nominated for the Gender Award voting of the UNODC.
