The five-day Regional Training-of-Trainers workshop, organised by the EU-UNDP Border Management in Central Asia (BOMCA) Programme in partnership with the International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD), was closed today.  Twenty-two training instructors/trainers from Border Guard Service, Customs, Phyto-Sanitary, Veterinary and Quarantine Control from Central Asia participated in the workshop.

Two experienced trainers from Czech Republic, Ms. Zuzana Armutidisová and Mr. Roman Hřebíček facilitated the workshop and helped the participants to enhance their communication and presentation skills, teaching methods, as well as planning for future training practice within their respective agencies.  

The general purpose of this regional event was to strengthen the capacity of future trainers/instructors to further disseminate knowledge on the Integrated Border Management concept, develop modern professional skills and exchange best practices at the national and international level, discuss issues of international cooperation.

The overall objectives of BOMCA are to help increase security in the Central Asian region, to contribute toward the facilitation of legitimate trade and transit, and to reduce the illicit movement of goods and people.

The BOMCA Programme is funded by the European Union and implemented by UNDP with ICMPD as an implementing partner.
