Cooperation with Civil Society
The National Coordination for Small Arms Management has continued to work hand in hand with civil society organizations in all actions related to fight against the proliferation of small arms and light weapons.
Civil society has been particularly instrumental in awareness campaigns on the impact of illicit SALW and in advocacy for voluntary surrendering of illegal firearms. The advocacy work is carried out through sport and drama activities as well as boosting economic development of local communities in order to prevent them from relying on arms for their survival.
