WAM & DDR Hub

SDG 16 Hub • 18 November 2020

The Department of Peace Operations (DPO), the Office for Disarmament Affairs (ODA) and United Nations Institute for Training and Research (UNITAR) host the WAM & DDR Hub - an Online Community of Practice. The Hub brings together Disarmament Demobilization and Reintegration (DDR) and Weapons and Ammunition Management (WAM) practitioners, including trainers and participants of the annual training course, to connect, network and share experiences, advice and guidance, including good practices related to DDR and WAM.

Since 2018, UNITAR has been supporting the DPO and the ODA in building the capacities of DDR practitioners to design and implement effective, tailored WAM activities in a range of DDR contexts in line with the latest international arms control standards and guidelines, namely the Modular Small-arms-control Implementation Compendium (MOSAIC) and the International Ammunition Technical Guidelines (IATG). This effort directly contributes to the SDG 16 and particularly target 16.4, related to reducing illicit financial and arms flows, strengthening recovery and return of stolen assets, and combatting all forms of organised crime.
