Regional Office for Capacity Building of the World Customs Organisation: Promoting exchanges between national customs administrations in response to COVID-19
The ICR Facility supports the ROCB in organising a series of online workshops on topics related to the effects of the COVID-19 crisis on customs organisations.
The ROCB is based in Abidjan and covers the following 23 countries: Mauritania, Mali, Niger, Chad, Cape Verde, Gambia, Senegal, Guinea-Bissau, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Guinea, Ivory Coast, Ghana, Togo, Benin, Burkina Faso, Nigeria, Cameroon, Gabon, the Central African Republic, the Democratic Republic of Congo and the Republic of Congo.
This intervention is a follow-up from a webinar organised in 2020 on how customs organisations could respond to the crisis.
Three workshops are planned during the second semester of 2021. The first one will tackle the subject of human resource management and infrastructure logistics in time of crisis. The workshops will combine high-level and technical discussions. The objective is to share best practices and promote cooperation between the different national administrations. Representatives from the private sector and international organisations will also be taking part. The first workshop is to take place in July 2021.
