About UNLIREC

The United Nations Regional Centre for Peace, Disarmament and Development in Latin America and the Caribbean (UNLIREC), headquartered in Lima, Peru, was created by a UN General Assembly resolution in 1986. UNLIREC is one of three regional centres of the United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs (UNODA) in New York.

UNLIREC is the only UN regional entity specialized in disarmament, arms control and non-proliferation in the Latin American and Caribbean region. Its main function is to assist States to implement international instruments and commitments in these fields.

UNLIREC supports Latin American and Caribbean States in achieving and maintaining peace and security through disarmament.

Mandate

UNLIREC was created to promote and enhance international efforts towards global disarmament and international peace and security through the support and promotion of regional disarmament efforts (A/66/6(Sect.4) taking into account the specific characteristics of each region.

Resolutions

The General Assembly (GA) is one of the five principal organs of the United Nations and the only one in which all Member States have equal representation. Each year a resolution is adopted by the GA on UNLIREC as part of the Reports of the First Committee on Disarmament and International Security.
