In 2013 UNMAS made the world safer. Whether it was through spearheading humanitarian mine action in Afghanistan and Mali, assisting United Nations deployment in the Central African Republic, completing the landmine survey of the Democratic Republic of the Congo, attaining agreements to demine in the West Bank or building secure weapons storage facilities in Libya, the lead United Nations entity on explosives hazards saved lives. UNMAS carried out United Nations Security Council mandates, emergency humanitarian deployments and fulfilled many requests from UN entities and governments to provide mine action assistance.
