applying manual and mechanical clearance. Additionally to conduct battle area clearance for
approximately 75,000 m2 and destroy all found explosive items.
Quantitative and measurable outcomes linked to the targeted results are presented in the following
table.
With our moderate resource we were able to achieve rich quality products.This is significant
contribution to our main objective to have the country free from mine. In addition contribute to help
the country to meet the Mine Ban Treaty obligations.
Impact of our products could be accessed through the land use. The returned land is now freely
utilized for different activities. Besides, destroying the explosive items stand for preventing many
potential humanitarian castoffs
