HUMANITARIAN MINE ACTION

CRI’s Humanitarian Mine Action activities aim to reduce the social, economic and environmental impact of mines, and Explosive Remnants of War (ERW) including unexploded sub-munitions.

Humanitarian Mine Action is not just about demining; it is also about people and societies, and how they are affected by mine and ERW contamination. The objective of mine action is to reduce the risk from mines and ERW to a level where people can live safely; in which economic, social and health development can occur free from the constraints imposed by mine and ERW contamination, and in which the different needs of survivors can be addressed.

CRI’s key Humanitarian Mine Action activities include (but are not limited to):

  • Clearance of mines and explosive remnants of war (ERW)

  • Land Release

  • Mine Risk Education

  • Community Liaison

  • Mine/ERW Survivor Assistance

  • Physical Security and Stockpile Management (PSSM)

  • Capacity building of national mine action organizations
