According to new data on arms transfers published on Monday 12th by the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), the volume of international transfers of major weapons in 2013-17 was 10 per cent higher than in 2008-12. This 10% is the money needed to reverse climate change and end poverty and hunger by 2030.
We launch today a new infographics on the urgent need to take action to reduce global investment on warfare and to engage for #2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development. The new material has been created within the framework of GDAMS 2018 (Global Days Against Military Spending), an initiative of the Global Campaign on Military Spending (GCOMS).
Reducing 10% of military assets will help saving our planet. Take action!
