Support and capacity-building in stockpile management of SALW, ammunition and surplus weapons in the Republic of South Sudan

South Sudan became a sovereign state last year. Recent months have shown just how fragile progress towards development and peace actually is. The high proliferation of small arms and light weapons is also a problematic legacy of the former civil war. BICC is conducting a project financed by the German Foreign Office to support the Bureau for Community Security and Small Arms Control (CSSAC) at the South Sudan Ministry of the Interior. The aim is to help improve the storage of weapons and ammunition.
