Programmes deliver life-saving mine risk education sessions to ensure communities living in some of the most heavily contaminated places in the world understand the dangers of landmines and ERW. Since 2017, we have supported over 17,000 mine risk education sessions benefitting nearly 400,000 boys, girls, men and women.</p><p>The mine action programme releases land in some of the most heavily contaminated countries in the world, ensuring communities can to return to their homes, travel safely to school and work, and farm their own land. In Iraq the removal of mines and improvised devices is enabling the return of displaced people to areas liberated from Daesh, where civilians are returning voluntarily to find their homes and public facilities significantly contaminated by abandoned improvised explosive devices.</p><p>The UK also supports national mine action authorities to manage their clearance of their own contamination more efficiently including training staff on quality assurance techniques and improving national mine action databases to make the most effective use of resources and ensure the most vulnerable communities have their land cleared.</p>
