    Gender dimensions of the life-cycle management of ammunition (LCMA)

    Gender dimensions of the life-cycle management of ammunition (LCMA)

    The life-cycle management of ammunition—or LCMA—is a set of interconnected processes and activities designed to keep the ammunition stockpiles of national authorities safe and secure while meeting their strategic and operational needs. As work continues to mainstream gender into security sector institutions and practices, ammunition management efforts in this field lag behind. What are the gender dimensions of ammunition management, both in terms of meaningful participation and decision-making at all levels and stages of the life cycle, as well as the differentiated impacts of weak LCMA practices on women, men, girls, and boys?

    Addressing these issues and giving their insights on the gendered impacts of unplanned explosions at munitions sites (UEMS) and ammunition diversion, are Katherine Prizeman from UNODA and Emile LeBrun from the Small Arms Survey.
