A demo version of the new online reporting template is now accessible for testing purposes. This new template aims to enhance the comparability of the reports and to improve their functions as a tool to articulate and communicate requests for assistance.

Many countries have indicated interest in improving their own capacity on small arms control. Their assessment needs often feature in their national reports. We offer here a compilation of such proposals. This compilation helps potential donors identify possible cooperation in follow up to the 2012 Review Conference.

UNIDIR has developed a practical tool, which helps States to diagnose assistance needs in detail. Also, it enables donors and organizations to share information on the assistance they are able to provide. User accounts will be created for State authorities upon request.

Information on national needs excerpted from past PoA national reports is available by country through this interactive map.

States, international/(sub)regional organizations and NGOs are encouraged to forward project proposals to be posted here. Potential donors are invited to address inquiries to the PoA-ISS.

Information on the projects and activities undertaken by the UN system is also available through this database.
