JOB CONTEXT :
Capacity building for ammunition depot and stockpile management is more than an emergency in Africa. Between 1998 and 2018, of the 449 accidental explosions on national ammunition recorded in the world, 62 occurred in Africa: 1 in South Africa; 1 in Angola; 1 in Burkina Faso; 1 in Cameroon; 5 in the Congo; 3 in Ivory Coast; 9 in the DRC; 1 in Egypt; 2 in Guinea; 2 in Guinea-Bissau; 1 to Kenyan; 7 in Libya; 1 in Mauritania, 8 in Mozambique; 3 in Nigeria; 1 in Sierra Leone, 1 in Somalia; 4 in South Sudan; 7 in Sudan, 1 in Tanzania; 1 in Chad. These incidents resulted in a total of 2,447 deaths, 10,258 injuries and thousands of striken, mostly civilians.
