Intervention areas

  • Clearance of landmines and ERW, including cluster munitions.
     
  • Risk Education enhancing safety of at-risk communities, thereby reducing the risk of injury and death.
     
  • Victim assistance in support of socio-economic reintegration, health and psychosocial well being of landmines/ERW victims.
     
  • Capacity building with the purpose of developing effective and resilient national capacities at the community or state level, which will be able to address the mine/ERW problem and other post-conflict challenges over a number of years, thus supporting recovery and development. Capacity building enables individuals, groups, organizations, institutions and societies to increase their ability to manage and deliver capabilities, and to take ownership of the problem and its solution. It involves the introduction of appropriate national laws and standards, the development of systems of governance, provision of equipment and building of infrastructure, coordination and effective project management, and the ability of national authorities to mobilize resources.
     
  • Physical security and stockpile management (PSSM) involving safe and secure storage of weapons and ammunition and provision of professional training on best approaches and proper procedures to be applied for the effective management of stockpiles.
     
  • Destruction of surplus weapons and ammunition. Destruction is a process of safe and final conversion of weapons and ammunition into an inert state, in which they can no longer function as designed.
     
  • Emergency response to unplanned explosions at munitions sites (UEMS).
     
  • Coordination, collaboration and mobilization of resources in support of humanitarian mine action and CWD development for increased quality, cost efficiency and impact on conflict-affected communities. Focus will be placed on facilitating and promoting better coordination and collaboration of not only mine action and CWD stakeholders, but also other relevant developmental governmental and civil society actors.
     
  • Advocacy generating publicity and raising awareness concerning mine/ERW impact, the dangers posed by surplus and deteriorating stockpiles of excess and aging munitions, and promoting rights of persons with disabilities.
     
  • Fundraising and donor matching mechanism.
