Evaluation of the destruction of arms and ammunition in Afghanistan

Assessment of the broader aspects of the HALO Trust SALW disposal actions in Afghanistan

BICC was commissioned during 2006 by the German Foreign Office and the Netherlands Foreign Ministry to assess a Weapons and Ammunition Destruction (WAD) project, which they have funded in Afghanistan. The assessment drew on BICC's expertise in the fields of DD&R and of small arms (SALW) control. WAD operations were observed in Kabul and in the four northeastern provinces of Afghanistan (Baghlan, Kunduz, Takhar, and Badakshan). BICC organized a workshop for all the partners in the WAD activity and offered a professional, timely, and valuable service that may help improve post-conflict peacekeeping activities in Afghanistan.
