Description: Landmines left by warfare pose a daily, deadly threat for millions of people across Asia and Africa. Once any peace accord is signed, the removal of mines and other explosives is a critical first step to building safety and stability in a former conflict zone. How that work is organized—and how communities are involved— can help shape the peace that follows. On April 25, USIP and HALO Trust, one of the world’s largest demining organizations, will gather experts for a discussion on the implications and results of demining.

Description: Throughout Northern Syria MSF has witnessed the impact of mines, booby traps and explosive remnants of war on the civilian population through its medical activities.
Not only the extensive use of explosive weapons during the hostilities, including bombs dropped from aircraft, but the widespread planting of mines, and booby traps including in private homes, fields and civilian infrastructure are having a devastating effect on civilians returning to their homes or trying to escape a warzone.
Given the limited local capacity to clear these areas and make them safe again, it will also affect their lives and livelihoods in the long term. MSF calls on the international community to significantly step up their support to international demining organisations to increase their activities in northern Syria.
Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an international, independent, medical humanitarian organisation that delivers emergency aid to people affected by armed conflict, epidemics, natural disasters and exclusion from healthcare.
