This map layer presents DDR activities since 1990. The main data source for this layer is from UNDP, complemented by various other data sources.
DDR is an integral part of peace missions. Through DDR, men, women and children who participated in a fighting forces in military structures in an armed conflict are formally disbanded from this force and return to civilian life and, particularly, civilian employment.
DDR activities are a precondition for sustainable security when an armed conflict has come to an end. They often last for many years and are closely connected with reforms in other areas, such as politics, education and health.
