November 20 - Factsheet - Impact of Mines/ERW on Children 

In recognition of Universal Children's Day, Landmine and Cluster Munition Monitor will release its annual factsheet "Impact of Mines/ERW on Children." The latest update details child casualties in 2013 due to landmines, victim-activated improvised explosive devices, cluster munition remnants and other explosive remnants of war (ERW). The factsheet also examines assistance to child casualties, finding a small but increasing number of activities reported by states to address the specific needs of survivors according to their age. (Last year's factsheet available here.)

Recognizing conflict and post-conflict development challenges, Equal Basis 2014 considers the influence of the World Report on Disability and provides an update on the rights of persons with disabilities, including mine/ERW survivors, in the relevant countries.
