Ghana, Landmine Monitor Report 2003


Ghana signed the Mine Ban Treaty on 4 December 1997, ratified on 30 June 2000, and the treaty entered into force on 1 December 2000. In its initial Article 7 transparency report, submitted on 24 July 2002, Ghana indicates that national implementation measures have not yet been enacted.[1] Ghana participated in the Fourth Meeting of States Parties in September 2002, and attended intersessional Standing Committee meetings in February 2003. It voted in favor of UN General Assembly Resolution 57/74 on 22 November 2002, calling for the universalization and implementation of the Mine Ban Treaty. Ghana states that it does not use, produce, or stockpile antipersonnel mines (including for training) and has never exported or transferred antipersonnel mines.[2] Ghana is not mine-affected.
