I recently received an e-mail with real good bait on the line so I would commit to sticking my neck in the noose once more. The questions included: Will technology ever improve speed and safety in Humanitarian Demining (HD)? What is the comparative efficiency among commercial, military and NGO clearance? Will dogs be more or less integrated into HD programs? When will land use priorities determine clearance priorities? Is "donor fatigue" a reality? If so, how do we fix it? These questions are right in the middle of my current pet struggle to give technology its rightful role and place in mine clearance.
