Promoting of Regional and Sub-Regional Cooperation

As the illicit circulation and proliferation of small arms and light weapons (SALW) is a phenomenon which is not limited by States boundaries, UNREC promotes regional and sub-regional cooperation in the fight against them.

  • Organisation of multinational meetings and seminars to promote regional and sub-regional cooperation and to assist States in the formulation and operationalisation of common positions on disarmament, non-proliferation and arms control.

  • Supporting African countries in the implementation of measures that are part of a regional framework in which simultaneous action is taken across the relevant countries.

  • Assisting States in creating the conditions for the coordination of arms control efforts at a sub-regional and regional level by increasing the capacity of individual States to effectively control national stocks and address illicit proliferation and trafficking of SALW.
