tweis-cy21-cover-310.jpegTo 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 $4.2 billion in more than 100 countries since 1993.

In 2020, several partner states and implementing partners requested use of these U.S.-funded CWD assets to assist with their COVID-19 response. While U.S. laws and regulations require that CWD activities remain the priority for our assets, we permitted their use for certain health and safety-related activities.

For more information please consult the Department of State website or to request a printed copy of To Walk the Earth in Safety, please contact the Bureau of Political-Military Affairs Office of Congressional and Public Affairs, at  pm-cpa@state.gov, and follow them on Twitter @StateDeptPM.

The report is a publication of the Office of Weapons Removal and Abatement in the State Department’s Bureau of Political-Military Affairs (PM/WRA) and is compiled, edited, and designed by CISR in coordination with PM/WRA.
