Training on Safe Management of Arms in Tanzania

RECSA prioritizes the capacity building of member states to enhance their capacity to secure and maintain their weapons and ammunitions, as obligated under the Nairobi Protocol.

One of the activities under this strategic intervention is the training of Security agents on the Physical Security and Stockpile Management (PSSM) of state owned arsenals. The PSSM training responds to the weak capacity among armed units to plan and implement arms management interventions.

The training modules empower participants on methodologies for ensuring that weapons will be operational when needed and that only authorized personnel will have access to them. It also builds capacity for responsible arms management to deter diversion and the risk of unintentional explosions.
