ICRC Regional Seminar for States of the Southern Africa
Development Community (SADC)
Harare, Zimbabwe
21–23 April 1997
Organized by the ICRC in cooperation with the Organization of
African Unity and the Republic of Zimbabwe

To further the developing momentum in the region towards a total ban on anti-personnel mines, the ICRC convened a meeting of defence and foreign affairs officials from the 12 SADC countries to discuss the military utility and humanitarian costs of anti-personnel mines. The findings of the military study commissioned by the ICRC and entitled Anti-personnel Landmines: Friend or Foe? were examined critically in light of the southern African experience. The seminar ended with an unequivocal call for an end to the landmine plague, and the participants unanimously endorsed the objective of a total prohibition of anti-personnel mines, including by their own governments.
