Fifth Arms Trade Treaty conference of states parties adopts decisions on gender-based violence

The Arms Trade Treaty's (ATT) Fifth Conference of States Parties (CSP5) concluded on 30 August 2019 by adopting its final report. The participants were able to reach agreement on a set of financial issues, as well as on decisions and recommendations for taking forward work related to the Treaty’s gender and gender-based violence (GBV) provisions. More work, however, remains to be done for the Treaty to have a meaningful impact on preventing human suffering from the international arms trade.
