The 2008 Convention on Cluster Munitions (CCM) addresses the humanitarian consequences of and unacceptable harm to civilians caused by cluster munitions. The CCM establishes an unconditional prohibition and a framework for action. It also requires the destruction of stockpiles within eight years, the clearance of areas contaminated by cluster munition remnants within 10 years and the provision of assistance for victims of the weapon. As of 31 December 2017, the convention had 102 states parties and 17 signatory states.1
