EU experts help to strengthen Strategic risk analysis of the law enforcement agencies in Uzbekistan

From 13 to 15 July 2022, the Border Management Programme in Central Asia held a workshop in Tashkent on strategic risk analysis for representatives of the border guard, customs and law enforcement agencies engaged in the border management in Uzbekistan. The workshop aimed to familiarise participants with the principles and methodology of the Common Integrated Risk Analysis Model used in the European Union (EU) and provide information on a systematic approach to data collection and analysis.

The workshop emphasised strengthening cooperation on strategic risk analysis by all agencies involved in the state border management system. A comparative analysis of national and EU best practices was carried out and recommendations for the implementation of a joint strategic risk analysis system were developed.

Strategic risk analysis is a key element for decision-makers at the strategic and political levels. Clear conclusions and recommendations made in Joint strategic risk analysis are sufficient ground for allocation of finance and structural developments of law enforcement agencies. The European Union’s member states possess broad experience in cooperation and providing joint strategic risk analysis.

The Border Management Programme in Central Asia (BOMCA), funded by the EU, aims to enhance security, stability and sustainable growth in the region, while supporting cross-border cooperation and improving living conditions for people in the border areas of Central Asia. Since its implementation in 2003, BOMCA has played a leading role in strengthening cooperation between border control authorities through the application of the concept of integrated border management, as well as in bringing border control in line with international and EU standards.

BOMCA’s tenth phase, launched in April 2021, covers four areas: institutional development of border management agencies, improvement of detection capacities, trade facilitation, and improvement of cross-border cooperation. With a budget of EUR 21.65 million and an implementation period of 4.5 years, BOMCA 10 is the largest regional initiative in the field. It is implemented by a consortium of border management institutions of selected EU member states and the International Centre for Migration Policy Development led by the State Border Guard for the Republic of Latvia.
