Supporting the Development of Armed Actor Capacity for Weapons and Ammunition Management

In: Effective Weapons and Ammunition Management in a Changing DDR Context: A Handbook for United Nations DDR Practitioners


The Handbook builds on good practices and innovative approaches developed in the field, while taking into consideration the most recent international arms regulation standards. It responds to the greater need for arms control activities in disarmament, demobilization and reintegration (DDR) programs, including weapons and ammunition management at the community level as part of community violence reduction projects. The material presented here equips DDR practitioners with practical resources to design effective weapons and ammunition management operations that can be implemented across the peace continuum.
