Background

The South Eastern and Eastern Europe Clearinghouse for the Control of Small Arms and Light Weapons (SEESAC) [1] is a joint initiative of the UNDP and the Regional Cooperation Council funded by the European Union, Norway, USA, the Governments of Germany and France and the Swedish Armed Forces. SEESAC is an integral part of UNDP’s work in Europe and the Commonwealth of Independent States (ECIS) and has, since 2002, focused primarily to strengthen the capacities of national and regional stakeholders to control and reduce the proliferation and misuse of small arms and light weapons, and thus contributed to enhanced stability, security and development in South Eastern and Eastern Europe [2]. SEESAC also works closely with national Ministries to mainstream gender equality in the security sector. SEESAC operates throughout South Eastern Europe (SEE), managing activities in Albania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Kosovo (UNSCR 1244), the Republic of Moldova, Montenegro, Serbia and the former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia. Support has expanded beyond SEE to include Belarus and Ukraine and increasingly inter-regional support.

The overall objective of the project is to contribute to international peace and security by combatting the threat posed by the widespread accumulation and illicit trafficking in small arms and light weapons (SALW) and their ammunition in and from SEE. SEESAC follows a holistic approach to SALW control, focused on: facilitation of strategic and operational regional cooperation, supporting policy development and capacity enhancement of institutions, awareness-raising and SALW collection campaigns, stockpile management, surplus reduction and improved marking and tracing capabilities, as well as improved arms exports control.
