The second Landmines and Livelihoods report, LIVELIHOODS ANALYSIS OF LANDMINE AFFECTED COMMUNITIES IN AFGHANISTAN, was commissioned by the Mine Action Coordination Centre for Afghanistan (MACCA) and the Department for Mine Clearance (DMC) with the aim of better understanding the development outcomes stemming from demining. Planning to undertake community-level surveys on a periodic basis to document these achievements and identify changes to policy and practice that could further enhance the contribution that the Mine Action Programme of Afghanistan (MAPA) makes towards Afghanistan’s development, MACCA and DMC contracted to assist on the design and implementation of a pilot project.

The project has four main objectives:

1 . Learning – to gain a better understanding of the development outcomes and impacts accruing from demining and how to enhance these through:

  • revisions to the criteria used to select priorities
  • adaptations to the priority-setting process
  • enhanced linkages with rural and community development organisations

2 . Accountability – more complete reporting to the Government of Afghanistan (GoA) and donors on the contribution made by the MAPA to Afghanistan’s development

3 . Capacity Development – ensure the MAPA, in partnership with Afghan livelihoods experts, can conduct such surveys on a periodic basis and analyse the data using the Sustainable Livelihoods framework

4 . Quality Management – inform the post-clearance survey efforts of demining operators (internal QA) and the MACCA/DMC (external QA plus national standards) on quality at the development outcome level
