The United Nations second conference to review progress made in the implementation of the Programme of Action to Prevent, Combat and Eradicate the Illicit Trade in Small Arms and Light Weapons will be held from 27 August to 7 September 2012 in New York.

At the global level, and in partnership with other UN agencies, UNDP ensures that voices from affected countries and civil society are heard in international policy fora. UNDP has long-supported the development and implementation of international instruments including the Convention on Cluster Munitions, the Mine Ban Treaty, and the Geneva Declaration on Armed Violence and Development.
