Towards a new era: introducing CTC and CTED electronic assessment and analytics tools


30 June 2021 | 1:30– 3.00 p.m.


Preventing threats to international peace and security caused by terrorist attacks and bringing  the perpetrators of such acts to justice remain major concerns of the Security Council. In its resolution 1373 (2001), the Council decides that the Counter-Terrorism Committee (CTC) shall monitor compliance with, and implementation of, the resolution and calls upon all States to report to the Committee on the steps taken to implement the resolution. In 2004, the Council established the Counter-Terrorism Committee Executive Directorate (CTED) to assist the Committee in its work.

The counter-terrorism landscape has evolved significantly since the adoption of resolution 1373 (2001) almost 20 years ago. Pursuant to a number of subsequent Council resolutions, Member States’ counter-terrorism measures must now address a broad range of areas, such as countering the financing of terrorism, law enforcement, border security, information-sharing, criminal justice, international cooperation, human rights and gender aspects. They should also involve a wide range of governmental and non-governmental stakeholders, including civil society and the private sector. Over the years, the CTC has adopted numerous tools for assessment and stocktaking for identifying the progress achieved and remaining shortfalls of Member States in their efforts to implement the relevant Security Council resolutions, providing recommendations for strengthening implementation and identifying technical assistance needs. The assessment tools are also used to prepare the Committee’s global surveys of States’ efforts to implement resolutions 1373 (2001), 1624 (2005) and other relevant resolutions.

Acting pursuant to resolution 2395 (2017), in which the Council directs CTED to recommend ways to update its survey tools, CTED has developed a cloud-based assessment and analytical portal, acting in close cooperation with the United Nations Office of Information and Communications Technology (OICT), with a view to facilitating current and real-time production of analysis and reports. The new cutting-edge electronic assessment and analytics tools of the CTC and its Executive Directorate will integrate all the relevant Council resolutions on terrorism and facilitate the identification of technical assistance needs by assessing the status of Member States’ implementation of the relevant resolutions through thorough, consistent, transparent and even-handed analysis. The new tools will serve as the basis for the global assessment of all Member States’ compliance with the obligations set forth in the relevant Council resolutions. With its emphasis on data analytics and data visualization, this new era in the assessment of Member States’ counter-terrorism responses will ensure that Member States, donors, recipients, the United Nations Office of Counter-Terrorism (UNOCT) and other United Nations bodies are kept fully apprised of the latest developments in the terrorism and counter-terrorism landscape, for the purpose of facilitating delivery of technical assistance and capacity-building support.


Please join us at this event is to demonstrate how the enhancement of the Overview of Implementation Assessment (OIA) and the development of the electronic Detailed Implementation Survey (e-DIS) will assist Member States to identify and address gaps in implementation and capacity and strengthen the facilitation of technical assistance delivery to States in a rapidly evolving global terrorist landscape.
