This Activity Catalog was first developed in 2020 as part of the Work Plan of the Global Forum on Cyber Expertise (GFCE) Strategy & Assessments Task Force, under the leadership of Robert Collett (former TF co-Lead), Carolin Weisser Harris and Lea Kaspar. With support from the US State Department, the Catalog was developed into an online interactive tool in 2022, to improve accessibility and reach.

The objective of this Catalog is to inform countries of the types of capacity support activities available from GFCE Members and Partners, and to help programme managers design projects. The Task Force aims to help countries requesting support for the National Cybersecurity Strategy (NCS) cycle by making the GFCE clearing house process more time efficient.
