Global CWD Repository

The Global Conventional Weapons Destruction Repository was established by The Center for International Stabilization and Recovery at James Madison University in 2018 to serve as the central information archives for the global humanitarian mine action (HMA) and conventional weapons destruction (CWD) communities. We welcome submissions from all individuals and organizations who have research, studies or documentation related to the policy, implementation, or monitoring of CWD and HMA activities.

Submit your materials to the repository here.
