Mine Ban Policy

Last updated: 18 December 2019


Grenada signed the Mine Ban Treaty on 3 December 1997 and ratified it on 19 August 1998, becoming a State Party on 1 March 1999. Grenada has not enacted new legislation specifically to implement the Mine Ban Treaty.

Grenada has not attended any recent meetings of the treaty. It did not attend the Third Review Conference in Maputo in June 2014. Grenada submitted its second Mine Ban Treaty Article 7 report on 21 June 2004 but has not submitted subsequent annual reports.

On 5 December 2018, Grenada voted in favor of UN General Assembly resolution 73/61 promoting universalization and implementation of the convention, as it has done previously.[1]

Grenada is party to the Convention on Conventional Weapons, including Amended Protocol II on landmines and Protocol V on explosive remnants of war. It is also party to the Convention on Cluster Munitions.

Grenada has never used, produced, imported, exported, or stockpiled antipersonnel mines, including for training purposes.
