Vientiane Action Plan

No Cluster Munitions: From Vision to Action
(The Vientiane Declaration)



Vientiane Action Plan (VAP)

The Vientiane Action Plan was adopted by the States Parties to the Convention on Cluster Munitions at the final plenary meeting of the 1st Meeting of States Parties, in Vientiane, Lao PDR, on 12 November 2010 and served as a road mapuntil the First Review Conference held in Croatia in September 2015.

Translating the legal obligations of the CCM into 66 concrete actions, the Action Plan is both a priority list for States Parties and other implementation actors and a tool to monitor implementation progress. With the adoption of this Plan including action to be undertaken up to the 1st Review Conference of the CCM, States Parties have sent a strong message on their commitment to the rapid implementation of the Convention.
