Border Security Initiative

The WCO “Border Security Initiative” provides members with capacity building and technical assistance across all the afore-mentioned commodity/thematic areas. The objective of the initiative is to facilitate Members’ activities to implement measures- whether standards, guidance, IT tools, operations, or specialized training – to enhance countries ’border security and management capacities in a holistic manner.

Diagnostic missions, training and various different forms of technical assistance are the main contributions of the Border Security Initiative. The produced training packages enable the training delivery to be very thematic or specific, while also catering for more holistic sessions where the focus is on the broader border security context.
