Small Arms Survey Handbook – Unplanned Explosions at Munitions Sites (UEMS)

The Small Arms Survey Handbookis an independent research project located at the Graduate Institute of International and Development Studies in Geneva, Switzerland. The objectives of the Small Arms Survey are: to be the principal source of public information on all aspects of small arms and armed violence; to serve as a resource centre for governments, policy-makers, researchers, and activists; to monitor national and international initiatives (governmental and non-governmental) on small arms; to support efforts to address the effects of small arms proliferation and misuse; and to act as a clearinghouse for the sharing of information and the dissemination of best practices.

The Small Arms Survey Handbook on Unplanned Explosions at Munitions Sites (UEMS): Excess Stockpiles as Liabilities rather than Assets, published in June 2014, is a reference and training tool that provides contextual information and analysis. It is a useful resource for policy makers, programmers, and practitioners addressing stockpile management and surplus destruction concerns.
