Breakdown of Collected Weapons by Province/District
Phase 2: pdf

"Small Arms", weapons designed for individual use, and "Light Weapons", those designed for use by a crew, are collectively called SALW.
SALW includes pistols, rifles, and potable launchers of anti-tank missiles. Landmines and explosives are also types of SALW in a broad definition.
The annual number of SALW victims are said to be more than 500,000, and thus, SALW is sometimes called "
de facto Weapons of Mass Destruction."
WDP Project is a new weapons collection methodology established by JSAC.
WDP Project stands for Weapons Reduction and Development for Peace Project.
