The CCW is the product of the international legislative activities of the 1970s, which led to a considerable development of international humanitarian law (IHL). It came as a result of the concerted efforts of the international community that reflected the increasing awareness that rapid advances in military technology had led to the development of weapons that are not always compatible with the humanitarian aspects that have traditionally been part of the law of war.
