The Portfolio of Mine Action Projects 2009 provides a snapshot of the problems of landmines and explosive remnants of war (ERW) in 33 countries, territories and peacekeeping missions, and describes the strategies for eliminating each of these threats.
This 12th edition of the annual portfolio is a collection of mine action project proposals that reflect a strategic response by field-based partners to the landmine and ERW problems in specific countries or territories.
Since the Anti-Personnel Mine-Ban Treaty was adopted in September 1997, mine action has helped an ever-increasing number of civilians reclaim their lives and restore their livelihoods. The treaty has helped mobilize the international community's response to landmines and their impact on people.
The tenth edition of the Portfolio of Mine Action Projects reflects the mine-action community's commitment to work together to achieve its shared goal of eliminating landmines and explosive remnants of war (ERW).
Each of the submissions is the result of field-based, coordinated and consultative processes among national authorities, nongovernmental organizations, and the United Nations.
1. There are three areas reporting mine/UXO contamination in Uganda. Firstly, the Luwero district north of Kampala, also referred to as the "Luwero Triangle," is reportedly affected by UXO as a result of fighting in the early Eighties between government forces and members of the National Resistance Army (NRA). Contamination also exists in the western Rwenzori Mountains as a result of infiltration in the late Nineties by the United Democratic Forces (UDF).
