Promoting secure environment by reducing armed violence - Operationalizing Arms Trade Tready

Description

In many developing countries violence conducted by small arms and light weapons is an obstacle for sustainable development and slows down the implementation of basic human rights. The focus of the project is to reduce armed violence, create a more secure environment for sustainable economic and social development. In addition the project will support the increase in local capacity to manage security related infrastructure. The goal of the project is to improve security situation in as many countries as possible could be improved nationally, regionally and globally. Special target countries are Nepal, Ecuador and Pakistan. In addition several activities will be conducted in Cambodia, Tanzania and Morocco. The development goals will be advanced among others by supporting States to implement the Arms Trade Treaty in which the regulation of trade and reducing of illicit trade in small arms and light weapons play an integral role. In order the Treaty to be universal and effective it needs to be implemented in as many countries as possible. It is of vital importance that the capacity of developing nations to implement the Treaty is as high as possible. This enables the improvement of the security situation. Direct beneficiaries are the governing structures and indirect beneficiaries are the whole population through improved security situation. The implementation of the Treaty makes it more probable to achieve sustainable development. When the security situation becomes better the development is more probable. In addition the project improves the realization of basic human rights - right to life, income and personal development. The project is implemented by Parliamentarians for Global Action, PGA. The organization is global and has a long standing record for successfully implementing similar projects. The project will be funded for two years and main activities occur during 2015-2016.
