Short Description:

Overall goal

Stärkung der Grenzkontrollen an der Afghanistan-Iranischen Grenze. Die 936 km lange Grenze zwischen Afghanistan und Iran ist mit illegalem Drogenhandel (vor allem Heroin) extrem hoch frequentiert. Oftmals haben es die Grenzkontrollen mit bewaffneten Händlern zu tun - als Resultat sind in seit 1980 über 3.300 Grenzpolizisten ums Leben gekommen.

Das vorliegende Projekt stattet nun einerseits die Grenzposten mit adequaten Gerätschaften aus und sieht andereseits Training für die Grenzpolizei im Umgang mit dem gesamten Bereich Drogenhandel vor. Iran und Afghanistan haben ein bilaterales Abkommen unterzeichnet, indem der Bau von 25 Grenzposten durch den Iran festgelegt wurde. Das vorliegende Projekt sieht daher auch vor ein einfaches System der gegenseitigen Information und Zusammenarbeit zwischen den afghanischen und iranischen Grenzposten zu etablieren.
