CASSOA TO PARTICIPATE IN THE EU EDF 11 COUNTER TERRORISM PROJECT
Everyone is now in agreement that terrorism in today’s world poses a serious threat that grows by the day. It is to that effect that one of the EAC development partners, the European Union through its European Development Fund 11th Project (EDF11) gave a grant to the EAC to combat cross-border terrorism, transnational organised crime and human trafficking across its borders.
Aviation being one of the conduits of the perpetuators of the above crimes, CASSOA therefore has a role to play. On 14th October, 2016 the Agency was represented by the Executive Director at a consultative meeting in Arusha, Tanzania with consultants and representatives of the EU to pave way for identification of possible areas of intervention.
The fruitful meeting which was attended by specialists in security matters will see CASSOA reaping benefits of capacity building for the region in order to enhance security oversight aimed at curbing and combating the above mentioned evils.
