This report examines the impact of explosive remnants of war (ERW) and mines other than anti-personnel mines (MOTAPM) on civilian populations internationally.
The term MOTAPM does not have a formal definition but is a cumbersome short-form for anti-vehicle mines (also called anti-tank mines).
The Second Review Conference to the CCW in December 2001 established an open-ended Group of Governmental Experts with separate coordinators to address the issues of ERW and MOTAPM. In 2003, an additional Protocol (Protocol V) was agreed within the CCW that contains obligations regarding record-keeping, retention, and transmission of information regarding ordnance use as well as obligations on the post-conflict clearance, removal and destruction of ERW.
