Capacity Building on Weapon Identification and Tracing in Conflict and Post-Conflict Settings

4 June 2015, New York, USA

The United Nations process on small arms and light weapons (SALW) control continues to frame the international community’s efforts to address the issues of illicit SALW. In preventing arms diversion and improving accountability over arms flows, the UN Programme of Action (PoA) and the International Tracing Instrument (ITI) continue to emphasize the importance of effective national controls over marking, recordkeeping, and tracing of small arms. The Second Meeting of Governmental Experts on Small Arms (MGE2) sought to further the discussion on these aspects.
