Mapping Study of Small Arms and Light Weapons Initiatives in West Africa. The objective of the mapping is to identify all stakeholders and the myriad interventions on SALW in West Africa as a basis for ensuring coherent responses to preventing the proliferation and use of SALW in conflict. This will also provide the ECOWAS Conflict Prevention Framework Database and the Prevention of Violent Extremism program (PVE) with critical information in the form of specific country actors, issues, arms dynamics, interventions, successes, impacts, and lessons. The mapping collects data related to SALW project interventions in West Africa, lessons learned, best practices as well as their impacts on host governments’ ownership of security governance. This will be achieved by providing relevant, timely, and accurate information necessary for evidence-based policy action. The exercises will also be aimed at mapping out existing gender dimensions in SALW initiatives within the ECOWAS region to form a basis for appropriate response. The volunteer's contribution in translating the report to French will enable the project Launch the report at a global forum in June 2021
