This project aims to develop the long-term operational, managerial, and support capacities of Iraqi mine action operators. The project pairs international mine action non-governmental organizations (NGOs) with national mine action NGOs. Project activities include: (1) transferring knowledge and skills to enhance the local capacity for both mine action and overall project management; and (2) implementing explosive ordnance clearance activities in areas recently liberated from Daesh. The United Nations Mine Action Service implements this project.

Expected results 

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) increased capacity of Iraqi national operators to deliver mine action activities; (2) enhanced capacity to manage and delivery programs, including leadership skills, operational systems, risk management and resource mobilization; and (3) increased safety and security for communities in areas recently liberated from Daesh.
