The following report documents the findings and recommendations of a feasibility study commissioned by UNDP under the mantle of its ongoing support to mine action in Azerbaijan. As recommended in a 2008 UNDP outcome evaluation, the study was tasked with examining the “existing capacities of ANAMA, as well as techniques and facilities to recommend on the possibility of converting ANAMA to an International Center for Mine Action (IMC)”1.

The report provides an overview of ANAMA‟s current operational capacity, training capability, and likely market niches that an IMC based in Azerbaijan could fill. It also describes the principal field of existing training providers. The conclusion of the report outlines a number of recommended steps, immediate and longer-term, that ANAMA and UNDP may wish to consider in advancing the establishment of an International Centre for Mine Action in Azerbaijan.
