Reference: SIPRI’s Arms Trade Treaty Database Now Covers East Asia and South East Asia
SIPRI is pleased to announce that it has expanded and improved its online database for Mapping Arms Trade Treaty (ATT)-Relevant Cooperation and Assistance Activities to include East Asia and South East Asia. The database now contains information on over 440 cooperation and assistance activities aimed at building capacity in areas relevant to ATT implementation in Sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America and the Caribbean, East Asia, and South East Asia since 2012.
SIPRI will continue to update the database as new activities take place and plans to further expand its coverage in the future to cover other regions. To this end, SIPRI has recently received funding from the UN Trust Facility Supporting Cooperation on Arms Regulation (UNSCAR) to expand the database to include relevant activities in the Middle East and North Africa
