    AFEMS is a member of WFSA, the World Forum on Shooting Activities. WFSA is an association of organisations whose purpose is the promotion and proliferation of hunting and target shooting and the study of related issues.
    We are pleased to announce that the United Nations has recognized the WFSA as an NGO (non-governmental organisation), allowing its participation at UN meetings where issues relating to small arms are discussed.
    The Forum, which is a scientific and research body, is composed of dozens of associations and organisations of national and international relevance.
    Together they represent the key players from the global community dedicated to the peaceful use of firearms.
    The ultimate goal of the Forum is the preservation of the traditions of hunting and shooting sports in the world.
    This goal is pursued through interaction with international organisations, with various national governments and with all relevant national and international regulators.
