Background

UNITAR supported the UN Department of Peace Operations (DPO) and the UN Office for Disarmament Affairs (UNODA) by developing this online course on Effective Weapons and Ammunition Management in a Changing DDR Context, based on the handbook published by DPO and UNODA in 2018 and revised in 2021.

The objective of the online course is to strengthen the knowledge, skills and attitudes on how to safely and securely handle, store and dispose of DDR weapons and ammunition and to enhance the capacity of DDR practitioners to properly manage weapons and ammunition in DDR contexts, in the framework of the new UN Approach to DDR and changing DDR contexts.

This is a self-paced online course on Effective WAM in a Changing DDR context. The course is open for registration now, please register to join the course. 

Event objectives

This online course has been designed to familiarise learners with the basic content of the handbook Effective Weapons and Ammunition Management in a Changing DDR Context to make sure that the key theoretical knowledge on this topic is consolidated. This scenario-based course will introduce you to the Dolovia context, a fictitious country where you will need to make sure the DDR processes are respected.

Content and Structure

The course is divided into three modules where you will learn about:

  • Planning for Weapons and Ammunition Management in a DDR Context
  • Weapons and Ammunition Management Activities in Transitional and Traditional DDR Settings
  • Cross-Cutting Technical Guidelines

The course is available in English and French.
