ITF, MDDC and MLI Signed a Memorandum of Understanding

22.10.2015

On 21 October 2015, ITF signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with the Marshall Legacy Institute (MLA) and Mine Detection Dog Centre in Bosnia and Herzegovina (MDDC) to execute a Mine Detection Dog Partnership Program in Armenia.

Armenia is in need of additional resources to free its land from the scourge of landmines. The Armenian Centre for Humanitarian Demining and Expertise and the Armenian Peacekeeping Engineering Battalion have requested assistance to enable six highly trained Mine Detection Dog (MDD) teams, which is the main scope of the project activities that fall under the signed MoU.

These capacity building activities supported by the U.S.Department of State's Office for Weapons Removal and Abatement and matched by MLI and ITF will make an important contribution to help accelerate the pace of landmine clearance operations in Armenia, and to update MDD Standard Operating Procedures available to the Armenian mine action authorities.

The project will start in October 2015 and will be finished in December 2015.
