The Strategic Pillars of RECSA interventions are based on the Nairobi protocol.
RECSA is an intergovernmental Organization with a Vision of a safe and secure sub-region in a peaceful continent from Arms proliferation. The Mission is to coordinate actions against small arms and light weapons proliferation in the Great Lakes Region, the Horn of Africa and the bordering states.
The Strategic Pillars of RECSA interventions are based on the Nairobi protocol. Although significant strides and achievements have been made in terms of the Development of strong and effective institutions, promotion of and facilitation of SALW management and effective information generation and dissemination, RECSA still faces challenges related to the lack of a sustainable funding mechanism, weak institutional capacity and, lack of an effective monitoring and evaluation framework among others.
It is against that background that RECSA Secretariat approached the Africa Development Bank (AfDB) for financial assistance. In response to the financial assistance, the Bank on behalf of the Transitional Support Facility extended a grant in an amount not exceeding One million Units of Account (AU 1,000,000) to assist in the financing of the Technical assistance and capacity building to the Regional Centre on Small Arms (RECSA) to enhance regional and states stability through reduction of proliferation of small arms (TCB- RECSA) Project.
