Overall goal


The Landmine and Cluster Munition Monitor (formerly "Landmine Monitor") provides monitoring on the humanitarian and developmental consequences of landmines, cluster munitions and other explosive remnants of war (ERW). An initiative of the International Campaign to Ban Landmines (ICBL) created in 1998, it provides research and monitoring for the ICBL and the Cluster Munition Coalition (CMC).


For 2010, the Landmine and Cluster Munition Monitor has made some changes to best align publication content with the needs of the international community,

particularly with respect to cluster munitions. The Monitor will produce the following research products in 2010:

" Online country profiles

" Landmine Monitor

" Fact sheets


Landmine and Cluster Munition Monitor's key target audiences are governments,

non-governmental organizations, and international organizations, as well as

media, academics and the general public.


Landmine and Cluster Munition Monitor meets the information needs of the

international community by:

o reporting on all aspects of the landmine, cluster munitions and ERW

issues including ban policy, use, production, trade, stockpiling, clearance,

casualties, victim assistance, and support for mine action;

o analyzing trends and developments in the above-mentioned thematic

areas;

o providing annual country-by-country updates on every country in the

world;

o making research findings available in a variety of print and electronic

mediums, and translating key research findings into non-English

languages;

o maintaining a global network of experts who are available to provide

information as needed to the international community.
