Life-cycle Management of Ammunition (LCMA): Lessons from Bosnia and Herzegovina

Jovana Carapic and Paul Holtom
Briefing Paper

Surplus ammunition poses significant safety and security risks in post-conflict settings, which is why effectively managing such ammunition is vital to mitigating those risks. This Small Arms Survey Briefing Paper provides ten lessons learned on the establishment of a life-cycle management of ammunition (LCMA) system in Bosnia and Herzegovina. The lessons relate to national ownership, planning, stockpile management, and disposal.
