Capacity-building on SALW control and DD&R in Southern Sudan




  • Militarization and arms control
  • Building Peace and Social Cohesion

From August 2007 to March 2008, BICC implemented a capacity-building project on small arms control and disarmament, demobilization and reintegration (DD&R) in Southern Sudan. Working with local partners, members of civil society and the Government of Southern Sudan (GOSS), BICC delivered four workshops on various aspects of small arms and light weapons (SALW) control and another four training courses on DD&R. In addition, BICC worked with local media and outreach groups to raise awareness of these issues among a wider audience. The project, which is a follow-up project of other BICC activities in Southern Sudan was supported by the Canadian Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade (DFAIT).
