The landslides caused by the May 2014 floods have moved antipersonnel mines. By recontaminating previously secured areas, the mines become ever more problematic for people already affected by the disaster.
The project provides one remotely operated demining machine, as well as tools designed for use in extreme conditions and hard-to-reach terrain.
The project also includes a substantial training component, and technical support from Digger Foundation experts.
The project will enable large expanses of land to be cleared of mines and returned to the people. Over the long term, the means being made available today, along with the skills acquired by the local partner, will enable Europe‘s most heavily mined country to increase its mine clearance capacity.
