Short Description:

Overall goal

Landmine Monitor is the research and monitoring initiative of the International Campaign to Ban Landmines (ICBL) and the de facto monitoring regime for the Mine Ban Treaty and also for the Convention on Cluster Munitions. It monitors and reports on States Parties' implementation of and compliance with the Mine Ban Treaty and, more generally, assesses the international community's response to the humanitarian and developmental consequences caused by landmines, cluster munitions and other explosive remnants of war (ERW).

Each year, Landmine Monitor produces several research products, among them the annual Landmine Monitor Report. Landmine Monitor's key target audiences comprise governments, civil society, international organizations and the general public.

In 2009, the Landmine Monitor will expand reporting on cluster munitions and provide a summary of Mine Ban Treaty implementation in the lead-up to the Second Review Conference of the Mine Ban Treaty to be held in Cartagena, Colombia at the end of 2009.

The key objectives of the Landmine Monitor in 2009 include:

-> issue fact sheets to coincide with Mine Ban Treaty and Convention on Cluster Munitions-related meetings and forums;

-> release a report in May 2009 documenting the development of state practice an policy on cluster munitions focusing on the period from November 2006 to December 2008;

-> produce the Annual Report & Executive Summary scheduled for release in November 2009;

-> update its website to ensure that research findings are widely available.
