Just days before the Arms Trade Treaty opened for signature at the United Nations parliamentarians from multiple African nations came together in a forward-looking workshop that considered the crucial role that legislators will play in the next phase of the ATT process.

Organized by Control Arms Steering Board Member Parliamentarians for Global Action and hosted by the Parliament of Tanzania, the two day meeting (29 – 30 May) brought together a total of 30 participants in Dar es Salaam that also included Ambassadors and representatives from Norway, Finland, the United States and the United Nations.

Significantly, the workshop produced a Dar es Salaam Plan of Action that identifies the key next steps and necessary measures that all parliamentarians should take to promote the signature, ratification and implementation of the Arms Trade Treaty.
