Project General Description

The Strengthening Regional and National Institutions for Reduction of Proliferation of Small Arms Project address the fragility issues within the Horn of Africa and Great Lakes Region. The proliferation of illicit small arms and light weapons in the Great Lakes Region, Horn of Africa and Bordering States continues to sustain armed conflicts, cattle rustling, poaching and fuels armed crimes and terrorism. All these challenges contribute to fragility situations that result in negative effects on sustainable development. This project emanates from the need to strengthen member states' capacity in arms management in order to reduce fragility that results in negative effects on sustainable development. The expected outcomes of the project include strengthened RECSA capacity for coordination of SALW interventions and improved arms management by the aforementioned member states. The project will run for 24 months at an estimated total cost of UA 1.0 million.
