NATO SALW & MA Information Sharing Platform - About.

Welcome to the Small Arms and Light Weapons (SALW) & Mine Action (MA) Information Sharing Platform.

NATO is committed to the implementation of international agreements and standards and to support Allies and Partners in fulfilling their obligations. Implementation of the UN Programme of Action on small arms and light weapons (UN PoA) provisions has to be integrated in a comprehensive and multidimensional approach in order to provide sustainable and long term results. NATO is also committed to multilateral cooperation within the NATO, EAPC, MD, and ICI as well as other multinational formats. In this respect, NATO has the ability to complement and support UN initiatives and activities with technical and military expertise.

NATO has committed to support the implementation of the Arms Trade Treaty (ATT) signed in 2013, and designed to regulate the international trade in conventional arms, from small arms to battle tanks, combat aircraft and warships. The treaty fosters peace and security by putting a stop to destabilizing arms flows to conflict regions. It is designed to prevent human rights abusers and violators of the law of war from being supplied with arms, and will help keep warlords, pirates, and gangs from acquiring these deadly tools.
