Weapons and Ammunition Management in Somalia

21–22 January 2014, Mogadishu, Somalia

This workshop aimed to highlight weapons and ammunition management (WAM) requirements, to review the scope of existing WAM activities, and to identify WAM capacity-building requirements, in particular on stockpile management and weapons and ammunition tracing. The workshop also had two key objectives—first, to clarify the obligations and responsibilities of the FGS in relation to WAM; second, and on this basis, to profile international partners and resources that are available to assist the FGS in meeting these obligations and responsibilities.

Partners: Federal Government of Somalia, UN Assistance Mission in Somalia (UNSOM), UN Mine Action Service (UNMAS), UN Development Programme (UNDP), and RECSA.

Support from UNIDIR's core funders provides the foundation for all of the Institute's activities.
In addition, dedicated project funding was received from the Government of Finland.

This conference is part of the project Weapons and Ammunition Management in Somalia (Phase II)
