Global and Regional Agreements on Small Arms and Light Weapons (SALW) Control_Trainer

Release date: 2005-12

This training module is intended for government officials, legislators, NGO project managers and coordinators, administrators and civil society activists who have a general understanding of SALW issues. However, it is anticipated that these participants will either have little to no knowledge of global and regional measures for SALW control and are thus unfamiliar with the existing agreements for tackling the small arms issues at the national, regional and global levels.

The objectives of this module are:

  • To introduce the SALW problem.
  • To familiarize trainees with global and regional agreements on SALW control.
  • To provide a general background for making policy decisions on SALW issues.
