Disarmament machinery

The United Nations disarmament machinery is comprised of the General Assembly, its subsidiary bodies — the First Committee and the Disarmament Commission — and the Conference on Disarmament. Disarmament issues are also addressed within international frameworks established by multilateral, regional and bilateral agreements. The Department for Disarmament Affairs provides substantive and technical assistance to the disarmament machinery. For the purposes of the Secretary-General’s report, a mandate was defined as a request or a direction for action by the United Nations Secretariat or other implementing entities in the system, which originated in a resolution of the General Assembly or one of the other organs.
