About the ICBL-CMC
The ICBL-CMC is a global civil society network dedicated to putting an end to the suffering caused by antipersonnel landmines and cluster munitions.
We seek to prevent all use, production, and trade of these weapons, and to ensure stockpiles are destroyed. We denounce any use of these indiscriminate weapons, and mobilize others to do so to further stigmatize use. We call for accelerated clearance of land contaminated with landmines, cluster munitions and other explosive remnants of war; and we want to see the fulfillment of victims’ rights and needs. The best way to reach these goals is to ensure the universal adherence to, and implementation of, the 1997 Mine Ban Treaty and the 2008 Convention on Cluster Munitions.
We work closely with government and United Nations partners and we inform and rally the broader public to act with us for a world without antipersonnel landmines and cluster munitions, where the rights of victims are upheld. We monitor, analyze, and report on progress on these life-saving treaties and on obligations yet unfulfilled. ICBL-CMC members, including victims of landmines and cluster munitions, take action in some one hundred countries. We believe in the impact of a coordinated and flexible network of non-governmental organizations and dedicated individuals with experience and passion.
