  • Acknowledged harm

Andorra has acknowledged the harm caused by the use of explosive weapons in populated areas (EWIPA) and committed to action against it. 


Andorra endorsed the Ireland-led joint statement during the 74th session of the UN General Assembly First Committee in 2019.[1] The statement recognised the devastating humanitarian effects of the use of EWIPA and encouraged states to participate in international efforts to address the impacts of the use of EWIPA on civilians, including by working towards the creation of an international political declaration on this issue.
