Darfur faces some of the highest global rates of small arms and light weapons proliferation. To alleviate the resulting insecurity at the community level, international actors such as BICC, UNAMID and UNDP, in cooperation with the Government of Sudan, are supporting a traditional-leader led approach to control arms. This approach has been piloted since 2011 in West and South Darfur and advocates marketing and registration, but not collection, of illegal, civilian-owned weapons as a first step in designing an effective arms control framework. These programmes also aim to supplement and coordinate with existing activities on arms control, community security and community vocational training to design tailored programming for communities affected by armed violence.
