The CSP 2015 in Cancun / Mexico hailed successful outcomes with a common message: we need strong implementation of the Arms Trade Treaty to save lives. This message echoed by Control Arms Coalition which is the main civil society umbrella organisation campaigning for a robust and legally binding Arms Trade Treaty. The “save lives” message was also echoed by Governments throughout the High Level sessions.  The majority of States also paid tribute to the role of civil society, in securing the ATT, and working toward its implementation and universalisation.
