Strategic Trade and Border Security

Strategic Trade and Border Security

CRDF Global works to keep communities around the world safe by helping U.S. and foreign government partners regulate, identify, and disrupt the illicit transfer of controlled items across borders. Our programs enhance national export control legislation and the interdiction and detection capabilities of border security forces  to respond to border security incidents. We increase interagency coordination among security stakeholders, building their capacity to prevent transshipment of illicit goods, detect suspicious behavior or falsified information, and fortify security infrastructure of land, air, and sea borders. We utilize community-level approaches that customize programs to local needs and languages and increase information sharing and involvement from local populations.

Some of our border security programs include:

  • Strengthening strategic trade control systems
  • Sanctions implementation
  • Law enforcement and border security trainings
  • Equipment procurement
