This project supports the universal and effective implementation of the criminalization provisions of the International Convention for the Suppression of Acts of Nuclear Terrorism (ICSANT), the Convention on the Physical Protection of Nuclear Material (CPPNM) and its 2005 Amendment (ACPPNM). Project activities include: (1) supporting the development of a database of legislation drafted by Member States to incorporate the criminalization provisions of the conventions in national law; (2) promoting the use of the database to criminal justice practitioners as a technical reference tool for their national implementation process; and (3) highlighting models and best practices for effectively incorporating the provisions. The United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime implements this project.

Expected results 

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) Strengthened adoption of criminalization provisions within Member States’ national legislation; and (2) Increased implementation and adherence by Member States not yet party to the conventions.
