Congratulations to the government of St. Lucia on its accession to the Convention on Cluster Munitions (CCM) thereby becoming the Convention’s 110th State Party.
St. Lucia deposited its instrument of accession with the United Nations in New York on 15 September 2020.
In accordance with CCM Article 17(2), the Convention will enter into force for St. Lucia on 1 March 2021.
The Implementation Support Unit of the Convention on Cluster Munitions warmly welcomes St. Lucia to the CCM community and looks forward to closely collaborating with it to achieve full implementation of the Convention.
With the accession of St. Lucia, membership of CARICOM states to the CCM has increased to nine of the fifteen-member community. The remaining CARICOM states that are yet to ratify or accede to the Convention on Cluster Munitions are encouraged to join the Convention in the very near future.
