The International Dialogue on Underwater Munitions (IDUM) is a platform for cooperation on solutions for sea dumped munitions. Stakeholders (governments, private sector, community organizations, military and others) discuss, in an open and transparent process, the policy, science, technology, and responses to underwater munitions.
Due to the current coronavirus outbreak, the 6th Dialogue will be held two days online; February 29 and 31, 2021, from 1300 to 1900 Central European Time (CET).
This year’s Dialogue will be a call for action for stakeholders to come together to support United Nations Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 14: ‘Life below water’. An interesting development in this respect is that IDUM is in the process of establishing a Training Centre for Innovative Science and Technology in Canada. It is time to put words into action: Dialogue VI will bring stakeholders together to discuss concrete solutions for underwater munitions.

Due to the current coronavirus outbreak, the 6th International Dialogue on Underwater Munitions will be held online, February 9 – 16, 2021.
This year’s conference will be a call for action as is expressed in our commitment to the UN’s OceanAction #21356 in accordance with SDG14. We will discuss the way forward from IDUM’s four pillars of policy, science, technology, and responses to underwater munitions.
One of IDUM’s initiatives is to establish a Training Centre for Innovative Science and Technology for Sea Dumped Weapons. Our conference will bring stakeholders together to discuss disposal solutions for underwater munitions.
The conference is seeking submissions related to new and emerging technologies and scientific approaches for the safe removal and disposal of sea dumped munitions of all classes (conventional, chemical, and radiological).
Presenters are required to submit a proposal in advance of the conference by 10 January 2021.
IDUM looks forward to receiving your presentation.
