Civil Society Statement on the Protection of Civilians in Urban Conflict (2022)

AOAV is proud to be one of the endorsing NGOs for the Civil Society Statement on the Protection of Civilians in Urban Conflicts, ahead of the UN’s annual open debate on the protection of civilians (POC) in armed conflict. Over the past year, the devastating impact of urban warfare on civilians has been made increasingly clear, especially the parallel direct and indirect, short-term and long-term nature of urban warfare’s effects on civilians and civilian infrastructure.
