Collection and Disposal (Collecte et Elimination)

La Collecte et l'Elimination des Armes illégalement détenues a lieu grâce à la Coopération Technique et l'Assistance Financière de certains Partenaires Techniques et Financiers.

Ainsi le Mali, à travers la CNLPAL (Commission Nationale de Lutte contre la Prolifération des Armes Légères), a bénéficié de deux aides techniques et financières de la part du Royaume de Belgique. Les deux projets ont permis de collecter sur la population de Tombouctou:

- armes: 2326
- munitions: 9207
- autorisation individuelle de possession d'armes: 1259

Dans le cadre du Programme de développement du Nord-Mali, la Lybie a financé un projet qui a permis la collecte de mille quatre cent trente et une (1431) armes.

Dans la même veine, la CNLPAL, vient d'obtenir le financement de deux projets similaires dans les régions de Kidal et de Gao respectivement par l'AEN (l'Aide de l'Eglise Norvégienne) et le Royaume du Japon.
