The obligation to cooperate with and assist other states parties

As was the case for victim assistance and environmental remediation, the year 2022 saw growing support for international cooperation and assistance. The states parties to the TPNW also adopted commitments to establish mechanisms to make it happen. These developments are important steps, but they must be followed by more tangible progress in order to advance implementation of victim assistance and environmental remediation under the Treaty.
