Civilian centred approach graphic.

The guide is based on recommendations from the report Hazard Aware and demonstrates a five step approach that deals with each DU site and its risks individually and seeks to reduce civilian exposure to DU, particularly in high risk groups such as children and scrap metal workers.

Sadly, at this stage there are NO obligations onthe users of DU to either release data on where the weapons havebeen used or take these simple steps to reduce civilian harm, these are just two reasons why we need a global DU treaty. Please share this image.
