ITF at the Afghanistan Mine Action Coordination Workshop

30.03.2017

More than 60 representatives of donor countries, implementing agencies from Afghanistan and Afghanistan Government representatives met in Geneva, Switzerland between 27 and 29 March 2017 for the »Afghanistan Donor & Implementing Partners Coordination Workshop for Mine Action«. During the workshhop the participants discussed Afghanistan's new strategic objectives and current needs in the field of mine action, as well as past funding levels and current funding needs.

In addition, the panel debate revolved around the transition to national ownership of mine action capacity. ITF representative Mr Roman Turšič actively participated with his contribution to this panel. Additionally, two panels were dedicated to emerging clearance challenges, such as is firing range clearance and the progress in the field of Survivors Assistance.

The workshop was also an excellent oppurtunity to conduct Afghanistan-related bilateral meetings between implementing partners and donors representatives.
