The work of our Centre is both reinforced and accelerated by the effects of COVID-19. Our focus now is to lessen the risk of violence due to social upheaval. ArmsTracker has moved to remote delivery, so we’re not disadvantaged by lockdowns at our end. Let’s work together.
ArmsTracker fills long-standing gaps in national arms and ammunition control. Secure and easy to use, it enables accurate record-keeping and enforcement of weapon laws in local languages. Available only to relevant government agencies in eligible UN Member States, this simple but powerful software computerises arms and ammunition storage, record-keeping and destruction, imports and exports, gun owner licensing and firearm registration.
Each installation is tailor-made for the relevant government agency to enforce national and regional laws and to complement existing systems. Consultation, customisation and installation is followed by staff and community training.
ArmsTracker evolves and improves as each new government agency installs its own customised version, so far across Africa and the Pacific. Join the ArmsTracker Community to take advantage of International Assistance donors, and to fund an upgrade of your national or regional arms control system.
