Regional meetings in Africa, 1995
Organized by the ICRC and the Organization of African Unity (OAU)
As Africa is one of the world's most severely mine-affected regions, it was one of the first areas where the ICRC directed its efforts to encourage States to restrict or ban use of the weapons. In 1995, in cooperation with the OAU, regional seminars were held in Addis Ababa (23–24 February and 11–12 April), Harare (2–3 March) and Yaoundé (25–27 April). The purpose of these meetings was to increase support for a ban or greater restriction on the use of mines, encourage ratification of Protocol II to the 1980 Convention on Prohibitions or Restrictions on the Use of Certain Conventional Weapons Which May be Deemed to be Excessively Injurious or to Have Indiscriminate Effects (1980 CCW) and promote participation in the forthcoming 1980 CCW Review Conference. The efforts of this early work bore fruit, in particular at the Oslo Diplomatic Conference. It was the determination and resolve of the African States to conclude a strong and unambiguous comprehensive ban treaty that was instrumental in achieving that result. Reproduced here are the final declarations of those 1995 regional seminars.
