Progress in eliminating #ClusterMunitions overshadowed by devastating human toll from widespread use in #Ukraine as @ISUCCM States Parties gear up to meet for #CCM10MSP. See #CMM2022 presser at www.the-monitor.org
No new States Parties to #ClusterMunitions Convention since Sept 2020, highlighting remaining challenges to achieve complete adherence and slowdown of pace of universalization. Currently 110 States Parties. See #CMM2022 report: www.the-monitor.org
About 1.5 million #ClusterMunitions and >178 million submunitions have been destroyed by States Parties to the Convention on Cluster Munition. >99% of the total declared. Remarkable success! @ISUCCM #CMM2022 www.the-monitor.org
No member of the 2008 Convention on #ClusterMunitions has used the weapons since joining it. BUT some non-signatories have done so, weapon has been used in #Azerbaijan #Libya #SouthSudan #Sudan #Syria #Ukraine #Yemen. See #CMM2022 report: www.the-monitor.org
#CMM2022 recorded 149 new #ClusterMunition casualties in 2021, decrease from 360 in 2020. Civilians represented 97% of all casualties whose status was recorded in 2021. #CCM10MSP
#Civilians are the main victims of #ClusterMunitions, with #Children particularly at risk. Number of child casualties recorded by #CMM2022 is harrowing: 90 killed or injured, average of 10yrs old. These weapons should never be used, anywhere, by anyone.
Two-thirds of all #ClusterMunitions victims in 2021 were #Children. Terrible reminder of dire need for rapide #Clearance of contaminated land, age-appropriate #EORE and adequate support to the victims/families. Read #CMM2022: www.the-monitor.org
