Regional groups

The States Parties to the Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons have organized themselves into a number of groups to facilitate their representation in the CCW meetings, as well as their preparations and discussions. The membership of these groups differs from those found in other forums, despite the similar names. Each group has a coordinator who may speak on behalf of the group and is responsible for organising and chairing meetings of that group.
