Mine action

Mine action entails more than removing landmines from the ground. It includes high impact efforts aimed at protecting people from danger, helping victims become self-sufficient and active members of their communities and providing opportunities for stability and sustainable development.

The objective of mine action is to identify and reduce the impact and risk of landmines and explosive hazards to a level where people are safe.
