Encouraging government efforts to increase participation of women in disarmament policy, education and advocacy

According to estimates from Amnesty International, 250,000 people are killed each year in situations of armed conflict and another 490,000 from firearms in non-armed conflict situations. SIPRI reports that the world’s annual military spending in 2008 was roughly US$ 1.5 trillion. At the same time, the world would require as little as US$ 19 billion a year to eliminate starvation and malnutrition.
