Landmine and Cluster Munition Monitor assesses the global landmine, cluster munition, and explosive remnants of war (ERW) situation, and monitors adherence to the treaties banning landmines and cluster munitions.
- The Monitor conducts its research and monitoring for two global coalitions, the International Campaign to Ban Landmines and the Cluster Munition Coalition, and is the de facto monitoring regime for the treaties banning landmines and cluster bombs.
- Before the Monitor there was no systematic monitoring of the international community’s response to the humanitarian problem caused by landmines, cluster bombs, and other ERW.
- Landmine Monitor was created in 1998, and became Landmine and Cluster Munition Monitor in 2010. From 1999-2009 the Monitor produced two publications, the Landmine Monitor Annual Report and its Executive Summary. Starting in 2010 the Monitor began producing three publications: Country Profiles, Landmine Monitor, and Cluster Munition Monitor.
- The Monitor consists of a eight member Monitoring and Research Committee, an Editorial team and a network of over 70 researchers.
- Mines Action Canada has been heavily involved in the Monitor since its beginning and our staff are currently on the Monitoring and Review Committee and the Editorial team.
