UNREC updates


from 23 to 25 November 2020, UNREC organized a training on the integration of gender-responsive measures in the control of small arms and light weapons (SALW) in Kinshasa, the Democratic Republic of the Congo(DRC).

This initiative supported the National Commission on the Control of Small Arms and Light Weapons and Reduction of Armed Violence (CNC-ALPC) and the implementation of the 2018-2022 National Action Plan (NAP) for the control and management of SALW.

Experts from the Ministries of Gender, Family and Children, Defense, Interior and Foreign Affairs, as well as civil society experts, participated in the event.

This training allowed stakeholders responsible for the control of SALW in the DRC to learn about international instruments related to gender and the added value of gender considerations when undertaking SALW-control activities.

The event was possible thanks to the financial support from the #EU and the technical support from UNREC and the United Nations Mine Action Service (UNMAS)
