Physical security and stockpile management (PSSM) partnership retreat in Nairobi, Kenya

From 16 to 17 October 2018, a partners retreat took place between representatives of MSAG (Multinational Small Arms and Ammunition Group) with MSAG representatives from Austria, Germany and Great Britain attending, RECSA (Regional Centre for Small Arms Control), the International Peace Support Training Centre (IPSTC) and BICC.

The purpose of the meeting was threefold: To plan for the MSAG handover of the running of the PSSM regional training courses in March 2019 to RECSA, to help identify continued support to RECSA and to develop and finalize a joint PSSM training strategy. During the PSSM partners retreat, all partners agreed on the need for continued support for the PSSM Regional Competency-Building Seminar beyond March 2019 where the German Armed Forces support component under MSAG draws to an agreed end.
