Progress in international cooperation under Article X of the Biological Weapons Convention (BWC) is a prerequisite for success at the Ninth BWC Review Conference. This requires further dialogue around options for international cooperation under this Convention.
To this end, UNIDIR organised this event to discuss the findings of a new report on advancing Article X of the BWC, with a particular focus on the promotional aspects of this important provision of the BWC.
The event outlined options identified in the report that could enhance the implementation of Article X. It then moved on to a discussion on this important topic with a view to stimulating thinking in this area ahead of the Ninth BWC Review Conference.
A recording of the event is available on the UNIDIR YouTube channel (or see below).
