The 19th Edition of To Walk the Earth in Safety is now available. 

TWEIS-2020-250.jpgTo Walk the Earth in Safety is a report underscoring the accomplishments of the U.S. Conventional Weapons Destruction Program. For over 20 years, the United States leads the international donor community in promoting peace and security by partnering with nations to reduce the availability of excess, loosely-secured, or otherwise at-risk small arms and light weapons and munitions, as well as address humanitarian hazards from landmines and unexploded ordnance in post-conflict countries.

The United States is the world’s single largest financial supporter of conventional weapons destruction, investing over $3.7 billion in more than 100 countries since 1993. In 2019, the United States funded conventional weapons destruction efforts in 58 countries. Our assistance – that of the United States government and our global partners – is crucial to building a more safe, secure and prosperous world.  Thanks to strong bipartisan funding support from Congress, the Department of State looks forward to continuing this important work with other donor countries, those impacted by conflict, and the brave men and women who work in the field to secure at-risk weapons and munitions and clear landmines and other explosive hazards.
