Rauf Mamedov, Mine Victim Support Officer of the Azerbaijan National Agency for Mine Action (ANAMA), conducted a survey during the week of 11–22 August 2003 on the needs and life conditions of the mine/UXO survivors in the Fizuli district of Azerbaijan based on a methodology that he developed. The study was considered a pilot project for future surveys. The results of Mamedov’s pilot project in August will provide ANAMA with additional knowledge of survey and analysis techniques in preparation for another nationwide survey to identify the concerns, needs and locations of mine/UXO survivors envisaged to be undertaken sometime around the end of 2003 or the beginning of 2004.
