Mali: Armed violence reduction in Mopti Region - September 2015 [EN/FR]

In Mali, the proliferation of small arms and light weapons (SALW) leads to many incidents, which are mainly caused by poor gun storage practices at the household level and tensions amongst communities. In order to reduce these risks, UNMAS supported a pilot project implemented by DanChurchAid (DCA) from March 2014 to July 2015, aiming at improving the security situation, as well as reducing tensions within and between communities in the region of Mopti.
