States Party to the Cluster Munitions Convention must act now!

States party to the Convention on Cluster Munitions met in Beirut last week. The ICRC calls on them to rapidly implement their time-bound commitments.

The Convention does ban the use, production and stockpiling of cluster munitions, but it also calls on States to provide risk reduction education, clear remnants and bring assistance to victims and families.

Concrete steps must be taken and the harm caused by cluster munitions must end, now.
