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.
The course is linked to the WAM&DDR Hub, the Community of Practice for DDR and WAM practitioners. If you are not a member yet, you can apply here: WAM & DDR Hub | Apply to join (unddr-wam.org)
