From 14 to 15 November 2023, officials from the Caribbean Community (CARICOM) and the Dominican Republic will gather in Saint Lucia for the 3rd Annual Meeting of States of the Caribbean Firearms Roadmap.

For the first time since the adoption of the Caribbean Firearms Roadmap in 2020, States, together with partners and donors from the international community, will meet in-person to discuss the implementation of the Roadmap and renew their commitment addressing illicit firearms and ammunition trafficking.

The meeting is organized by the CARICOM Implementation Agency for Crime and Security (IMPACS) and the United Nations Regional Centre for Peace, Disarmament and Development in Latin America and the Caribbean (UNLIREC) in collaboration with the government of Saint Lucia.

The meeting, which is funded by Canada, envisages a one-day working level exchange between national focal points established under the Caribbean Firearms Roadmap as well as a high-level meeting of Ministers on 15 November.
