Problem Statement

Turkmenistan signed the Mine Ban Treaty on 3 December 1997 and ratified it on 19 January 1998, becoming a State Party on 1 March 1999. There is no official statistics available on the mine/ERW contamination as well as victims’ statistics.

However, Turkmenistan suffers from a large ammount of obsolete ammunition that together with weak storage conditions poses serious threat to human security. There was at least 1 unplanned explosion at munitions sites in Turkmenistan in period from January 1998 till today.

What we do

The exposure within the Central Asian region, including Afghanistan, to explosive hazards is acknowledged. This continued threat fosters various negative implications, from safety, security, humanitarian development and impacts on confidence and security building processes.

Thus, ITF is since 2009 supporting the Central Asia states in addressing the concerns and challenges stemming from explosive hazards (EH) through regional technical cooperation in which initiative Turkmenistan is actively engaged.
