First ISACS consultation held


"Additionally, CASA launched a project to develop international standards for small arms control (ISACS), which emulates similar United Nations initiatives related to mine action and disarmament, demobilization and reintegration. The two-year project envisaged a participatory and inclusive process to identify internationally accepted standards for SALW control. In this regard, from 24 to 25 November a broad-based consultation on developing international small arms control standards was organized in Geneva to establish a basis for the contents and methodology of the ISACS process."
