The guns may stop firing and the soldiers return to base, but for many civilians the legacy of war will haunt them long after the conflict has ended. Millions of unexploded munitions in all shapes and sizes are left behind and all too often these Explosive Remnants of War (ERW) claim the lives or the limbs of innocent civilians.This film highlights the recent developments which have been made by the international community to reduce this suffering. It provides a detailed explanation of both the ERW issue and the new Protocol on Explosive Remnants of War adopted by States Parties to the Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons (CCW).
