Best Practices in the Implementation of the PoA (Mejores Prácticas en la Implementación del PoA)

Se hacen esfuerzos para mejorar la coordinación interinstitucional entre aquellas entidades estatales y de la sociedad civil para el intercambio de información relacionada al Programa de Acción.

Es pertinente reconocer también como buena práctica nacional la participación activa de la sociedad civil como actor que contribuye a superar el flagelo de las armas ilícitas en territorio nacional, y así coadyuvar a la paz y seguridad internacional.

Translated content:

Efforts are under way to improve inter-agency coordination between relevant State bodies and civil society organisations for the exchange of information relating to the Programme of Action.

Another best national practice that deserves recognition is the active participation of civil society in helping to overcome the scourge of illicit weapons within Guatemala, and thereby also contributing to international peace and security.
