The publication is intended particularly for States and their armed forces, but also for international and non-governmental organisations involved in explosive ordnance disposal, risk education or assistance to the victims. This first edition, which takes into account decisions reached at the First Meeting of States Parties to Protocol V in November 2007, reflects the legal obligations laid down by Protocol V on ERW and the non-legally-binding technical annex. Written in a straightforward style, it is intended simply to give guidance in a complex area of endeavour, based on best practice and lessons from the last 15 years of mine action. We hope that it will prove a useful resource to everyone concerned with the consequences of explosive remnants of war.
