Summary Curbing the use of IEDs requires concerted, multifaceted, cross-jurisdictional, international efforts. As this Note highlights, improvements in stockpile management will help to reduce the amount of explosive material available for use in IEDs. By paying greater heed to the IATGs and being more active in the control of conventional munitions stockpiles, states and international bodies can mitigate the proliferation of IEDs. Concurrently, they can step up the sharing of information on IED events to enhance awareness of the threat and to inform national and international counter-IED decisionmaking. Wider state participation in international forums such as the CCW and its Group of Experts under Amended Protocol II is also likely to strengthen global C-IED efforts
