The African continent has made significant efforts to strengthen the
capacity of states in better preventing and combating the proliferation
of weapons of mass destruction and their means of delivery; in
particular to non-state actors, such as terrorists.
Various activities, such as training, consultations, sensitisation
and awareness campaigns have been converging towards the same objective:
ensuring that states undertake all necessary steps to prevent nuclear,
chemical or biological weapons (or the materials needed to produce them)
from being acquired, trafficked or used.
