Reference: “SIPRI’s Arms Trade Treaty Database Now Covers Latin America and the Caribbean”

From SIPRI (Stockholm International Peace Research Institute):

SIPRI is proud to announce that is has expanded and improved its online database for Mapping Arms Trade Treaty (ATT)-relevant cooperation and assistance activities to include activities in Latin America and the Caribbean. The database now contains information on over 350 activities involving partner states from Sub-Saharan Africa and Latin America and the Caribbean since 2012.


Expanding the database to include Latin America and the Caribbean will greatly improve the ability of stakeholders to plan activities and build synergies between different activities and projects. All information about activities involving states from Latin America and the Caribbean will be available in Spanish and English.

The expansion was carried out by SIPRI in collaboration with the United Nations Regional Centre for Peace, Disarmament and Development in Latin America and the Caribbean (UNLIREC) and was funded by the UN Trust Facility Supporting Cooperation on Arms Regulation (UNSCAR).
