1.4 Collection and destruction of weapons
Since 2000, actions to collect and destroy weapons and UXO's have been taking place. Up to this point have been destroyed:
- 160 384 Uxo's (Source: CAAMI)
- 3072 Mines A / P, 161 A / T 152 A / B (Source: CAAMI)
- 29 weapons in 2006, using the PSR‐SALW
Still, there is an ongoing pilot project in the military district of Bissau and in the Bigene area (the border area of north). This is the collection and destruction of light weapons and small arms delivered by the population (veterans and civilians). But the intensification of all this action will be achieved by developing and adopting the National Plan of Action.
