Initiative to Counter Unmanned Aerial System (C-UAS) Threats Launch Event and First Regional Workshop

Initiative to Counter Unmanned Aerial System (C-UAS) Threats Launch Event and First Regional Workshop

13-14 December 2018

Friday 14 December 2018

The meeting brought together 90 government and multilateral organization representatives from 24 countries and three organizations to raise awareness on how terrorists can use UAS to threaten individuals and civilian targets and promote discussion on national action plans, approaches, and efforts to counter the misuse of UAS. The aim of the Initiative is to develop a set of internationally recognized, non-binding Good Practices that can serve as the basis for international engagement, assistance, and training to understand how international stakeholders can counter terrorist use of UAS. It is anticipated that these Good Practices will be presented for endorsement at the Tenth GCTF Ministerial Plenary Meeting in September 2019.
