Based on recently acquired data from selected areas in Battambang province in northwestern Cambodia, the authors offer a preliminary report on what appear to be very significant shifts in the nature of the mine/unexploded ordnance situation. The new data is used to make comparisons between the situation in 2000 and the current situation. Next, they offer evidence of how locally based initiatives appear to have become the predominant driving force of mine action in the selected areas.
