This programme aims to establish and strengthen UNICRI Regional Initiatives to protect major events, such as Olympics, Expos, economic and political summits and other mass gatherings. Major events are unique opportunities to strengthen security governance in the country and region hosting them, as well as to enhance different forms of cooperation, such as public-private partnerships.
UNICRI, in cooperation with the Organization of American States (OAS), seeks to strengthen the IPO Americas programme, a network of 28 Member States represented by officially designated National Focal Points (NFP). Such network establishes the priority of the Region in the major events security field, promotes different forms of mutual assistance as well as public private partnerships (PPP). Participating countries are involved in need assessment activities, workshops and trainings organized to provide assistance on the security planning of specific major events.
UNICRI works to launch, in full coordination with relevant Regional Organizations, similar initiatives to develop Governmental Networks in the following Region: Africa; Asia-Pacific; Central Asia; Gulf and Middle East.
