Two Years of Global Harm to Civilians from the Use of Explosive Weapons in Populated Areas (2021-2022)

Explosive Weapons Monitor: Two Years of Global Harm to Civilians from the Use of Explosive Weapons in Populated Areas

 

The Explosive Weapons Monitor presents in 'Two Years of Global Harm to Civilians from the Use of Explosive Weapons in Populated Areas (2021-2022)' its findings on the patterns of harm to civilians from the use of explosive weapons in populated areas, as shown in its first two years of data collection on incidents of explosive weapon use and casualties, including deaths and injuries, recorded by Action on Armed Violence (AOAV), and incidents of explosive weapon use affecting aid access, education, and healthcare, recorded by Insecurity Insight in 2021 and 2022. The findings of this report are supplemented with incident reports compiled from open sources from Ukraine, Myanmar, the Occupied Palestinian Territories, Syria, and Ethiopia. These incidents illustrate the complexity of identifying the full scope of harm to civilians and the ways in which different patterns of harm overlap.
