Lessons
Findings
Recommendations
1

Increase effort to accelerate arms collection and implementation of the community development project before the completion date. Consider inclusion of nearby communities (not initially targeted) who are willing to voluntarily submit their small arms and light weapons to benefit from the community development projects

2

Deepen sensitization activities including the use of champions - organizing house-to-house meetings and intensive engagement and involvement of legislators and local authorities to deal with the individualistic tendencies and to project communal and group benefit.

3

Refine the focus group benefit concept to include support to help the beneficiaries to formalise and grow their businesses.

4

Consider in-kind rewards for individuals in the form of scholarships for children/wards of those who voluntarily surrender their weapons

5

Support NATCOM to improve its website to facilitate information sharing especially for citizens in the diaspora. This will help mitigate inflow of illicit arms and light weapons into the pilot countries.
