Clearance of landmine/ERW contaminated land in Lebanon

03.02.2015

ITF provides continuous support for landmine/ERW clearance activities in South Lebanon, implemented by Danish Church Aid (DCA) and Norwegian`s People Aid (NPA). All activities are organized in close collaboration with Lebanon Mine Action Centre (LMAC).

In year 2014, a total of 113,708 m2 of land were cleared recovering and disposing of 169 Cluster Munitions (CM) and 17 items of Unexploded Ordnance (UXO). Altogether 295 persons directly benefitted from the clearance operations, mainly by gaining access to previously blocked resources such as agricultural land. The tasked areas are of huge importance for local population by having a great socio-economic impact once they are cleared and handed over to final beneficiaries for agrictultural use, housing or grazing.

In 2014, clearance of landmine/ERW contaminated land in South Lebanon, was funded through ITF by OPEC Fund for International Development (OFID) and  the Government of the United States of America – "U.S. Department of State’s Office of Weapons Removal and Abatement".
