Performance Commentary

Montenegro did not make progress in 2017 towards releasing the relatively small amount of area still contaminated with cluster munition remnants (CMR). However, in May 2018 Norwegian funding for the necessary land release efforts was secured, with CMR survey and clearance to be undertaken by Norwegian People’s Aid (NPA), in partnership with the national authorities.

Recommendations for Action

  • Montenegro should ensure that CMR survey and clearance operations to be conducted by NPA, in collaboration with the Ministry of Interior of Montenegro and Directorate for Emergency Situations, and with secured funding from the Norwegian government, begin as soon as possible.
  • Montenegro should develop a completion plan to ensure that non-technical survey of the small number of remaining areas not yet surveyed is undertaken swiftly, in addition to technical survey and clearance of all remaining CMR-contaminated area by its August 2020 CCM Article 4 deadline.
