ITF at the Forum of Experts - Global Demining Initiative for Colombia

14.05.2016

Between 10 and 13 May 2016, ITF Director, Ambassador Damjan Bergant, ITF Deputy Director Sabina Beber Boštjančič, and ITF Project Manager Andrej Golob, took part in the Forum of Experts in support of the Global Demining Initiative for Colombia.

The Forum of Experts was organized in order to familiarize donors with the Colombian mine action sector, help understand the challenges at hand and plan efforts to assist Colombia in making the country landmine free. It also entailed a field visit to affected regions, so that Forum's participants can become acquainted with existing challenges first-hand.  

ITF Director participated in the Panel Discussion, titled “Analysis of Experiences and International Technical Assistance”, during which he emphasized that ITF is eager to transfer knowledge, good practices and lessons learnt to partners in Colombia to strengthen the country's capacities and enable the authorities to effectively and successfully tackle the mine contamination issue.
