These guidelines have been produced to help the International Red Cross and Red Crescent Movement better manage the risks associated with weapon contamination resulting from conventional weapons and/or chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear hazards. The document covers developing and conducting risk awareness and safer behaviour interventions to reduce the likelihood of casualties among staff, volunteers and the civilian population.
It also outlines key considerations in assessing, designing, implementing and monitoring activities to raise awareness of weapon-contamination hazards and to promote change in the behaviour of Movement staff and affected communities. The guidelines are intended to assist the components of the Movement in fulfilling their obligations under the Movement Strategy on Landmines, Cluster Munitions and other Explosive Remnants of War.
