Exploring the direct and reverberating effects of explosive weapons on the environment.
Join us on March 23rd 2021 for this webinar exploring the environmental impacts of the use of explosive weapons in populated areas (EWIPA).
This webinar will focus on the direct and reverberating environmental impacts caused by EWIPA. Building on a recent UNIDIR project to identify indicators to document the harm from explosive weapons, it will highlight the importance of environmental considerations and why these must be captured as part of assessing and monitoring the impact of EWIPA.
