Unplanned explosions at munitions sites (UEMS) are a significant safety concern for governments and a major security challenge for the international community. 

This Handbook contains analysis of this data, with many helpful tables, figures, maps, and annexes. It serves three primary purposes, striving to:

  • support best practice by explaining the scale and scope of the challenge that policy-makers face;
  • encourage states to manage their stockpiles effectively;
  • help generate better data capturing and record keeping; and
  • serve as a reference tool and a training tool.
