In 2015, under the auspices of the GCTF, the United States and Turkey launched the International CT and CVE Clearinghouse Capacity-Building Mechanism (ICCM) in an effort to develop a more systematic approach to direct, coordinate, and de-conflict the provision of CT and CVE resources to key partner nations
The ICCM is an online database of unclassified civilian CT and CVE activities, which serves as a resource and decision-making tool to better coordinate and deliver capacity-building assistance.
The ICCM is password-protected and only open to GCTF members (29 countries and the EU), key donors and affiliated institutions, such as the United Nations.
In 2015, the ICCM was launched as a two-year pilot project in Kenya, Nigeria, and Tunisia.
The ICCM is now live with recent, ongoing, and planned CT and CVE capacity-building projects.
Data in the ICCM comes from partner nation inputs, existing donor databases, and open source materials.
As the ICCM's two-year pilot period comes to an end in September 2017, the United States is looking to fund the continuation of the ICCM and its expansion to include additional countries.
The specific countries to be added will be provided by CT at a later date.
PROJECT'S GOALThe goal of this project is to expand as well as maintain and update the International Counterterrorism and Countering Violent Extremism Capacity-Building Clearinghouse Mechanism (ICCM) under the auspices of the Global Counterterrorism Forum (GCTF).
