Grenada, Landmine Monitor Report 2004


Key developments since 1999: Grenada became a State Party on 1 March 1999.

Grenada signed the Mine Ban Treaty on 3 December 1997, ratified on 19 August 1998, and the treaty entered into force on 1 March 1999. Grenada did not report any national implementation measures in either its initial Article 7 report submitted 13 July 2001 or the follow-up report provided 21 June 2004. [1] Both are essentially “nil” reports. Grenada participated in the Ottawa Process and made a statement on behalf of the six members of the Organization of Eastern Caribbean States at the signing ceremony in Ottawa in December 1997.[2] Grenada has not attended any subsequent Mine Ban Treaty-related meetings, but it has voted in support of every pro-ban UN General Assembly resolution since 1996, including Resolution 58/53 on 8 December 2003. Grenada has never produced or stockpiled antipersonnel landmines, and is not mine-affected.[3]
