UN Office for Disarmament Affairs (UNODA)

Originally established in 1982 (although variously named as a “department,” “office,” and “center”), UNODA promotes the goal of disarmament and non-proliferation and the strengthening of disarmament regimes. It promotes disarmament in the areas of nuclear weapons, as well as conventional weapons, especially landmines and small arms. UNODA provides organizational support for the General Assembly, the Disarmament Commission, the Conference on Disarmament and other bodies; it encourages regional disarmament efforts; and it provides information on UN disarmament efforts.
