NAIROBI, KENYA — The Multinational Small Arms and Ammunition Group (MSAG) trained 27 military, police and corrections officers from 8 East African States on physical security and stockpile management (PSSM) of small arms and light weapons, using ISACS as a basis for the course.
Officers from Burundi, Comoros, Kenya, Rwanda, Seychelles, South Sudan, Sudan and Uganda participated in the training.
Eight East African officers who had earlier participated in a training-of-trainers course led the training alongside MSAG Verification Officers from Austria, France and Germany.
The ISACS Inter-Agency Support Unit delivered a training module on the International Small Arms Control Standards and its Assessment Tool, in particular as they relate to stockpile management. The in-depth PSSM training modules, developed my MSAG, use ISACS as a basis.
The training is part of a broader initiative by MSAG to build the capacity of East African States to put in place effective controls over the full lifecycle of small arms and light weapons.
