- Cambodia should accede to the Convention on Cluster Munitions (CCM) as a matter of priority.
- Cambodia should apply with its obligations under international human rights law to clear cluster munition remnants (CMR) on territory under its jurisdiction or control as soon as possible.
- Cambodia should more accurately establish the extent of CMR contamination, through completion of the national baseline survey (BLS) and through further systematic and comprehensive evidence-based survey of suspected hazardous areas (SHAs) generated by the BLS.
- The Cambodian Mine Action and Victim Assistance Authority (CMAA) should work with operators to elaborate a specifc strategy for survey and clearance of CMR, with realistic annual targets for land release and an accompanying resource mobilisation plan.
- The CMAA should improve CMR planning and prioritisation guidelines and implement a more targeted and systematic clearance prioritisation process for confrmed hazardous areas (CHAs).
- The CMAA should review existing national standards on CMR clearance.
- The CMAA should continue to work to establish an up-to-date and accurate national database that is open to all mine action stakeholders.
