In view of the security issues associated with the Sahel-Sahara region, Mauritania is in receipt of French aid in the areas of security and defence. Initiatives designed to reinforce Mauritania’s sovereign capability to combat terrorism and organised crime were launched in 2009, as part of a regional approach to Sahel-Saharan security (under an FSP project, "Justice and Security in the Sahel-Saharan Zone"). French instructors also help to provide training at the Atar military academy.
