This state of affairs further undermined the ability of the UN bodies that were responsible for DDR to adhere adequately to the IDDRS
, which in turn compromised the ability of the IUNDDRU to coordinate DDR activities effectively.
These are critical to setting out the "rules of the game" and, if informed by the standards set out by the IDDRS, can also potentially ensure that key provisions related to gender equity and minority inclusion are grounded early in negotiations.

The IDDRS acknowledge that although the primary role of disarmament within DDR is to disarm combatants in the immediate post-conflict period, two wider dimensions need to be taken into account: that commonly it is also desirable and necessary to reduce and control the weapons held by the civilian population; and that short-term disarmament measures must be linked to longer- term small arms and light weapons (SALW) control.
Fourth, the dominant blueprint approach to DDR (exemplified by the detailed guidelines contained in the IDDRS) limits possibilities for flexibly adapting DDR to whatever community security needs and arrangements there may be in a given context.
In the preparation of detailed agreements and arrangements for disarmament, demobilisation and reintegration, the implementation of measures necessary to adhere to gender and child specific UN IDDRS standards for encampment shall be given the highest priority.

Finally, a brief comment on the IDDRS. The IDDRS framework is a necessary and important exercise.
Yet, as alluded to earlier, the IDDRS reinforces a sense of reintegration as a catch-all by making various and conflicting claims about what reintegration can and should do, without requisite prioritization.
[...] the IDDRS represent progress in making DDR programmes more coherent and standardized, programmes are often isolated from the socio-economic context.
