International Campaign to Ban Landmines

aka ICBL, ICBL-CMC   |   Washington, DC   |  http://icblcmc.org/

Mission

Landmines kill and maim several thousand people every year – farmers cultivating their land, children playing, women fetching water – families struggling to survive. The International Campaign to Ban Landmines fights to keep civilians safe from these inhumane weapons that still pose a risk, decades after conflicts have ended. Thanks to the ICBL's actions throughout the world, the number of new landmine victims has dropped dramatically and the use of landmines is increasingly rare. But there is still work to do—to clear the land that is contaminated by these silent killers and to take care of landmine survivors. We will keep fighting until everyone is safe from landmines. Will you join us?

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

We seek to prevent all use, production, and trade of these anti-personnel landmines, and to ensure stockpiles are destroyed. We denounce any use of these indiscriminate weapons, and mobilize others to do so to further stigmatize them. We call for accelerated clearance of all landmines 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.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Under its 2017-2021 Strategy, the ICBL-CMC aims at achieving three key goals:
 No more use of antipersonnel landmines or cluster munitions;
 Decrease in land contaminated by landmines or cluster munitions;
 Measurable progress in the quality of life for victims of mines and cluster munitions.

Our activities and expected outputs are focused on the following areas of work:
 Advocacy with government policy-makers and decision-makers
 Awareness raising of the general public, NGOs, financial institutions and / or government policy- and decision-makers
 Facilitating the provision of technical assistance and expert advice to MBT and CCM co-chairs / coordinators, governments, and civil society organizations
 Researching and monitoring the humanitarian and developmental consequences of landmines, cluster munitions and ERW throughout the world, and the progress towards universalization and implementation of the MBT and CCM in 197 countries and 7 areas.
 Capacity building of civil society organizations and campaigners around the world through one on one follow up, small grants and training as needed.

With the combined efforts of our network NGOs worldwide, we have the capability to move towards a world free of land mines and cluster munitions, where victims of these indiscriminate weapons can lead fulfilling lives.

Adopted on 18 September 1997, the Mine Ban Treaty was signed on 3 December 1997 by 122 countries and entered into force more than 13 years ago on 1 March 1999. As of March 2017, the Treaty had 164 States Parties, or more than 80% of the world's nations. Most of those still outside the treaty nevertheless abide by its key provisions, indicating near-universal acceptance of the landmine ban.

States that have joined the treaty must destroy stockpiled mines within four years of entry into force of the treaty. Of the 164 States Parties, 34 have completed stockpile destruction, destroying over 53 million stockpiled mines altogether.

A total of 120 countries have signed the Convention on Cluster Munitions and 103 states have ratified or acceded to the convention.

A total of 28 States Parties have declared the destruction of 1.4 million cluster munitions containing 175 million submunitions. This represents the destruction of 97% of the cluster munitions and 98% of submunitions declared stockpiled by States Parties.
