UNDP implements ISACS in Bosnia & Herzegovina


"When we accept that every life is value worth protecting, it becomes difficult to accept the enabling of general violence, crime and terror that results from a failure of reasonably expected prevention. We also further refuse to accept this violence to create an environment of fear and insecurity. Our collective decision to refuse to accept this as the normalized state of affairs has moved and still moves local institutions into action. In cooperation with police agencies in Bosnia and Herzegovina and Small Arms and Light Weapons Coordination Board of Bosnia and Herzegovina, UNDP is continuously supporting joint efforts in reduction of illicit firearms. This support to local partners and state level agencies comprises of several different activities: SALW collection campaigns, provision of country’s SALW strategy, International Small Arms Control Standards (ISACS) implementation and finally safe and permanent disposal of collected SALW.”
