ATT Working Group on Transparency and Reporting
The Working Group on Transparency and Reporting was established at the CSP2 in August 2016. It is chaired by Ambassador Paul Beijer (Sweden) and Guillaume Michel (Mexico).
First meeting (8 February 2017)
The group's first meeting was premised on an 'issues paper' prepared in advance by the co-chairs that outlined options for the group's mandate going foward, as well as input from the Phillippines and the civil society network, Control Arms. Presentations were delivered by the ATT Secretariat and the ATT Baseline Assessment Project/Small Arms Survey. It is likely that the group will meet again before CSP3.
