Barbados, Landmine Monitor Report 2004


Key developments since 1999: Barbados became a State Party on 1 July 1999.

Barbados signed the Mine Ban Treaty on 3 December 1997, ratified on 26 January 1999, and the treaty entered into force for the country on 1 July 1999. Barbados did not detail national implementation measures in its initial Article 7 transparency report submitted 12 May 2003, in which it stated that it has not “used, stockpiled, produced or transferred” antipersonnel mines.[1] Barbados participated in the Ottawa Process and subsequently attended one annual meeting of States Parties in September 2002. The country voted in favor of United Nations General Assembly Resolution 58/53 on 8 December 2003, as it had done on similar pro-ban resolutions since 1996. Barbados has never produced, transferred, or used antipersonnel mines, and is not mine-affected.[2]
