The Fourteenth Meeting of the States Parties (14MSP) will take place in Geneva from 30 November to 4 December. It will be the first formal meeting of the States Parties to the Convention on the Prohibition of the Use, Stockpiling, Production and Transfer of Anti-Personnel Mines and on Their Destruction since the 2014 Third Review Conference in Maputo, Mozambique.
Since the Maputo Review Conference, States Parties have continued working towards ending the suffering and casualties caused by anti-personnel mines for all people for all time and to end the era of anti-personnel mines. The 14MSP will be the opportunity to share with the international community the States Parties’ most recent achievements, including those by Mozambique and Finland.
The meeting will be presided over by Belgium. The ceremonial opening will feature addresses by Dr Barbara Haering, President of the GICHD Council of Foundation, H.R.H. Princess Astrid of Belgium and other high level participants.
