UNIDIR tests ISACS software tool in Trinidad & Tobago


On 12-15 March, the United Nations Institute for Disarmament Research (UNIDIR) tested a beta version of ISACS software in Trinidad and Tobago, receiving feedback from the National Strategic Security Agency (Ministry of Security), the CARICOM Implementation Agency for Crime and Security (IMPACS) and UNLIREC.   UNIDIR is developing a software package that is designed to assist users in navigating the ISACS modules and to assist States to assess for themselves the extent to which they have implemented global commitments related to SALW control.  This was the first field-testing of the new ISACS software and the results are encouraging — following the testing, 87 percent of participants said they were "very likely" or "certain" to use the ISACS software once it is finalised at the end of 2013.
