In 2012, UNRCCA, together with the CTITF Office, organized consultations with international and regional organizations to initiate the mapping process of counter-terrorism activities in Central Asia and to determine the position of these activities vis-à-vis the Joint Plan of Action.
The consultations led to the creation of a Matrix of the activities of regional and international organizations in Central Asia under each of the four pillars of the Joint Plan of Action. It was prepared in 2012 based on information exchanged at the Regional Consultation held in Almaty, Kazakhstan on 21-22 June 2012, as well as with direct input from concerned regional and international organizations. The matrix was subsequently updated in 2015 and 2018.

As part of the activities for Phase III of the Project on “Towards a comprehensive implementation of the United Nations Global Counter-Terrorism Strategy in Central Asia” the UN Office for Counter-Terrorism-UN Counter-Terrorism Center (UNOCT-UNCCT) and the UN Regional Center for Preventive Diplomacy in Central Asia (UNRCCA) have envisaged a series of coordination meetings bringing together UN agencies and regional and international organizations working on issues related to preventing violent extremism (PVE) and counter-terrorism (CT) in Central Asia.
At the first meeting held on February 23, 2018 in Istanbul, Turkey, a decision was made to map out the activities of organizations and share them in order to have a better picture of what is being done and by whom. Such a mapping, compiled based on information received as of March 2018, is a living document that will be updated periodically. It is expected to be a useful tool for coordination, information sharing, identification of gaps and potential identification of synergies and cooperation between organizations.
