Afghanistan resumed clearance of CMR-affected areas in 2017 after a year in which funding constraints and insecurity stalled progress towards meeting its clearance targets and Article 4 deadline under the Convention on Cluster Munitions (CCM). Most of Afghanistan’s clearance, though, concerned an area in which no submunitions were found.
The Directorate of Mine Action Coordination (DMAC) should set out a detailed schedule and timelines for clearing cluster munition remnant (CMR)-affected sites.
DMAC should ensure the consistency of data across all reporting formats.
