NCT South America 2018 - 13/02/2018

Come aboard, as we embark on the first edition of our NCT South America event! The event will build upon the legacy of the NCT event series already hosted in Europe, the USA, Asia, the Middle East and will take place from 13-14 Feb 2018 in Bogota, Colombia. CBRNe Society has partnered with the Chemical Information Center of Peru (CINQUI) in organising the 1st edition of NCT South America! CINQUI is a non-profit organization that provides information and support in case of emergencies involving hazardous materials.

South America has seen an increase in awareness in CBRNe threats in the past years, with a successful fight against corruption, and the strengthening of government institutions, states are bringing their attention to other security threats. Progress is undeniable, but longstanding regional issues prevail, as anti-government militia still play a major role both in the illicit drug trade and in terrorism in the region. Moreover, diffuse UXO and mine contamination also represents a persisting regional security concern, which is being addresses through comprehensive measures.

The Zika virus pandemic of 2015-2016 has taught not only the region, but the entire world, valuable lessons regarding the containment and control of viral epidemics, shedding light on faults related to the structure of the health system in South America and the international response to this infectious disease worldwide. These developments underline the need for adaptive response mechanisms, effective bio-surveillance systems, new vaccines and better treatment methods.

The conference will bring together both high-level speakers discussing regional CBRNe challenges and threats, as well as the exhibition. By welcoming government delegations, leading first responders and decision -makers from both the CBRNe and EOD community, NCT South America 2018 is the place to be.
