There are three ways to improve the mine action process to allow displaced people to return to their land sooner and with less risk of injury. Naturally, a major increase in aid funding would achieve a similar result using the existing process. Three main avenues to achieve improved outcomes with the same level of funding are as follows:
- Improving the technology, cost effectiveness and reliability of the mine clearance process,
- Applying risk management approaches to manage mine contamination problems, and
- Utilizing local resources and seeking alternative sources of funding more effectively.
