Mozambique is committed to having completed implementation of its mine clearance obligations under Article 5 of the Anti-Personnel Mine Ban Convention (APMBC) by 1 January 2015. This will, for the most part, marks the end of proactive demining efforts in Mozambique. It is understood that it is always possible that previously unknown mined areas may be discovered after completion has been declared.

With a view to being able to manage residual contamination once completion of international treaty obligations has been declared and pro-active humanitarian demining efforts have ended, Mozambique's National Demining Institute (IND) requested the GICHD to conduct an assessment looking at Mozambique's national capacity to manage residual contamination.

The purpose of the assessment was to conduct a capacity assessment and mapping of the IND and other relevant government institutions, and to present recommendations concerning the transition of the IND and the establishment of a sustainable national capacity to manage and respond to residual contamination.
