Following the European Commission evaluation guidelines, the evaluation reviews the EU–ASAC programme both as a whole, and in terms of its separate elements. These components include assistance in preparing an arms law, improved record-keeping and safe storage of military weapons stocks, destruction of civilian and surplus weapons, WfD pilot projects and other assistance with voluntary weapons collection and public awareness. 17 The report evaluated the programme and each component according to the criteria of relevance, efficiency, impact and sustainability.
Thus in order to assess WfD projects, project evaluations need to examine how weapons collection and the provision of incentive projects are linked, and how the development component benefits the local communities. 42 CONCLUSIONS This paper reviewed two different approaches to evaluating WfD projects by comparing their methodologies and findings. In the case studies reviewed, both approaches found security in community improved in the wake of project interventions. The research carried out by UNIDIR shows that an inclusive and bottom-up evaluation is possible, applicable and useful to the disarmament field, and can provide fresh insights to help increase the effectiveness of community-based arms reduction schemes.
Third, the conventional evaluations (except CTB’s) overlooked the active role of women as housewives and other female family members in the mobilization. Locals regarded awareness-raising activities as part of a longer-term sensitization process in the community, and not simply as the campaign activities carried out by the external agencies. In all three case study countries, the locals recognized the contribution of women at this prior stage of sensitization. Their activities included convincing male family members to hand over weapons (Albania, Cambodia and Mali), organizing inter-community meetings to generate trust between different tribal groups (Mali) and serving as the direct contact point with local police (Albania).
