ACT – Advance Counter Terrorism for Lebanon Security

Terrorism continues to pose one of the greatest threats to Lebanon's national security. Instability in the region is having a destabilising effect on the country's security situation. Criminal networks are increasing by air and sea routes which are conducive to the recruitment of new terrorists. In this context, Lebanon must address this phenomenon by enhancing its capacities to react  to new threats of terrorism and organised crime, while promoting the rule of law and human rights in line with international standards.

ACT - Advance Counter-Terrorism for Lebanon Security is a project funded by the European Union and led by FIIAPP in consortium with CIVIPOL and Arma dei Carabinieri. Under the umbrella of this project, the EU assistance aims at  building the Lebanese national capacities to react to the threats of terrorism and organized crime and it assists the country in its policy to increase the resilience to cyber risks, while promote a rights based approach over terrorism cases.

The project is aligned with the Single Support Framework for the Republic of Lebanon for the period 2017-2020 and is based on the National Roadmap on Counterterrorism and Cybersecurity Strategy to ensure ownership in the implementation and achievement of the project expected results.
