By ratifying or acceding to the Convention on Cluster Munitions, States Parties commit to never use, produce, stockpile or transfer cluster munitions. In addition, States Parties commit to promote universal adherence to the CCM; destroy stockpiled munitions; clear contaminated land and conduct risk education; assist victims; provide technical, material and financial assistance to other States Parties; undertake transparency measures; and enact legal, administrative and other measures to implement the Convention.
To guide States Parties effectively implement the Convention during the period 2021 to 2026, at the September 2021 Second Review Conference of States Parties to the Convention, States agreed to the Lausanne Action Plan (LAP). This action plan elaborates the priorities established by States Parties through the various actions to be undertaken and the expected key results to be derived from these actions.
