In this cycle, UNSCAR funded activities to spur the momentum toward the entry-into-force of the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT). Projects focused on Asia and the Pacific, Africa, and Latin America and the Caribbean. A total of 51 member states benefited directly or indirectly from UNSCAR-funded activities in the 2013-2014 implementation cycle.
Specifically, UNSCAR-funded activities contributed to the ratification, implementation and promotion of the ATT by:
- supporting governments’ decision-making processes;
- building capacities of national authorities;
- catalyzing national legislative procedures;
- raising awareness in civil society;
- developing underpinning research on the implementation of the Treaty;
- identifying synergies between implementing requirements of the Arms Trade Treaty with other existing regional and global instruments and efforts.
