From 27 to 28 November, Handicap International (HI) is organising a regional conference on the bombing of civilians in Maputo, the capital of Mozambique. This conference will bring together some 20 States, 10 African civil society organisations and international NGOs. The goal is to raise awareness of this vital challenge among African countries and to encourage them to take action on the world stage to protect civilians from the devastating impact of the use of explosive weapons in populated areas.
What does this conference aim to achieve
The humanitarian principles — humanity, impartiality, neutrality and independence — are under increased scrutiny and pressure. The purpose of this paper is to contribute to an increased understanding of the perceived and actual challenges humanitarians face in operational contexts as they apply the principles.
August 1, 2015 is the 5th anniversary of the entry into force of the Oslo Convention banning the use, production, stockpiling and transfer of cluster munitions. Despite the clear success of the convention, which 117 countries have signed, cluster munitions were still being used in conflicts in 2015.
Lyon, le 30 mars 2015. Depuis 2006, le 4 avril est déclaré par les Nations unies « Journée internationale de sensibilisation et lutte contre les mines ». Cette année, Handicap International dresse un constat accablant : les enfants représentent près de la moitié des victimes civiles de mines et restes explosifs de guerre, et la plupart ne retournent plus en classe après leur accident. A cette occasion, Handicap International mobilise les réseaux sociaux avec sa campagne digitale #1photocontre1mine et lance le jeu vidéo « Mine Busters » avec le soutien de Kuela Games.
Nearly half of all recorded civilian victims of mines and explosive remnants of war are children—and most do not return to school after their accidents. On April 4, the United Nations’ “International Day of Mine Awareness and Assistance in Mine Action,” Handicap International calls on States to allocate the human and financial resources necessary to secure accessible education for all.
