The United Nations Regional Centre for Peace and Disarmament in Africa (UNREC), the Economic Community of Central African States (ECCAS) and the United Nations Regional Office for Central Africa (UNOCA) have organised in collaboration with the Government of Cameroon, a sub-regional workshop to strengthen the technical capacities of the actors involved in the implementation of the Kinshasa Convention on Small Arms and Light Weapons (SALW) in Yaoundé, from 24 to 26 April 2019.
Geneva, Switzerland, 11 - 15 September 2017 States Parties to the Arms Trade Treaty [CSP 2017] have gathered to follow up on the implementation and universalisation of the treaty. This gathering was an opportunity for critical players at global sphere to take meaningful actions to reduce human suffering. While diplomats from 106 countries and civil society organisations attended the conference, procedural matters sometimes got more unnecessary attention rather than focusing on the main issue of reducing human suffering caused by the unregulated arms trade. CPS – AVIP was represented at the conference by Nounou Booto Meeti [Programme Director] under the umbrella of the Control Arms coalition.
The Centre for Peace, Security and Armed Violence Prevention [CPS-AVIP] participated at the Executive Education Course on the implementation of the Arms Trade Treaty organised by the Geneva Centre for Security Policy [GCSP] and hosted by the African Centre for Peace and Security Training (ACPST) in Addis Abba/Ethiopia from 9th to 13th November 2015.
