National Coordination Agency

There is no single national agency that is responsible for coordinating all matters related to small arms and light weapons (SALW). Responsibilities for SALW are sub divided among several national agencies.

However the Task Force on Narcotic Drugs and Illicit Weapons is a special unit that has been established within the Ministry of Home Affairs to among other roles help the government coordinate action and policy on trafficking in small arms. It liaises with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Office of the President with respect to international developments and new instruments, and with a wide range of other governmental departments concerning the implementation of existing commitments and agreements relating to illicit small arms, including those of the UN Programme of Action.
