The Catalog of Civil Society Assistance to States Parties highlights the contributions of civil society to the BWC and States Parties and to the enhancement of biological safety and security. From Ottawa to Hamburg, there are civil society assistance programs across the world that are available to support the implementation of the BWC. The catalog includes organization and project descriptions and points of contact for each program, which aims to facilitate stronger connections between civil society and State Parties in need of assistance.

We are pleased to present the first of what we intend to become an annual catalog of civil society assistance programs, to highlight contributions to the BWC and States Parties, informing interested parties of civil society’s contributions to enhance biological safety and security. By providing a uniform product, we hope State Parties will be able to easily identify programs, experts and organizations. In addition to organization and project descriptions, the information provided in this catalog includes points of contact for each program to facilitate stronger connections between civil society and State Parties in need of assistance.

This catalog is compiled by Georgetown University Center for Global Health Science and Security and The Henry L. Stimson Center.

Material contained in this catalogue will be also included in the Stimson Center’s UNSC Resolution 1540 Assistance Support Initiative (ASI) Database.
