Making Room for Improvement Gender Dimensions of the Life-cycle Management of Ammunition

Disarmament can play an important role in ending existing conflicts and preventing the outbreak of new strife. Disarmament and arms control processes provide the breathing space for confidence to be built, stability to be strengthened and trust to be established.
UN Secretary-General António Guterres


Fissile material is a key component in the manufacture of nuclear weapons or other nuclear explosive devices. Therefore, a non-discriminatory, multilateral and international treaty banning the production of fissile material would represent a practical and significant contribution to nuclear disarmament and non-proliferation efforts.

As part of its strategy against the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, the European Union and the United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs (UNODA), through the United Nations Regional Center for Peace and Disarmament in Africa (UNREC) is organizing a regional workshop on banning the Production of fissile material for the manufacture of nuclear weapons or other nuclear explosive devices for West and Central African States in Malabo, Equatorial Guinea on 5 and 6 February 2019.

The aim of the workshop is to facilitate dialogue at the regional level among Member States on the implications of a future treaty and its relationship with already existing global and regional instruments. It will also facilitate the sharing of knowledge and information within the region on issues relevant to banning the production of fissile material for nuclear weapon or other nuclear explosive devices.

The workshop will be attended by representatives of West and Central African countries from a ministry or agency involved in the management of Weapon of mass destruction issues and / or security issues/nuclear safety.
