MESIS recognizes that the success of any programmatic engagement to develop capacity to meet CBRN risks depends on long-term sustainability.
MESIS has developed a model that specifically addresses the issue of sustainability. At the core of this model lies MESIS’s strong regional network who champion best practices and promote regional ownership of them. Culture and standards play an equally critical part in sustainability. For instance, MESIS has worked with a network of experts from a variety of disciplines to develop Arabic language curricula that will be used by regional Customs Departments to train front line cadres on dual-use goods.
