This project aims to support the development and application of gender perspectives in multilateral arms control, non-proliferation and disarmament. Project activities include: (1) researching women’s participation in technical roles related to conventional weapons and ammunition; (2) developing and implementing capacity-building activities to improve gender equality in technical roles in arms control and disarmament; and (3) organizing meetings with government representatives and stakeholders in multilateral capitals to promote the work carried out and gather suggestions on areas for priority engagement.

Expected results 

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) strengthened measures to improve current practices related to gender analysis and/or the use of gender-disaggregated data in conventional arms control and disarmament processes; (2) increased diversification of actors supporting the integration of gender considerations in arms control and disarmament policy and practice, including weapons and ammunition management; and (3) enhanced capacity of regional and national actors to address the causes of women’s underrepresentation in conventional weapons control policy and practice.
