The Evaluation of EC support for mine action in Africa is the first of six regional mine action evaluations that the Geneva International Centre for Humanitarian Demining (GICHD) will conduct or commission for the European Commission (EC). These regional evaluations follow from a Global Assessment of EC support for mine action completed in 2005. Given the broad scope of a regional evaluation, no attempt was made to assess the performance of individual
projects; rather, the focus was on EC mine action strategy and programming issues at the country and regional levels. In addition to a document review, the evaluation team sent questionnaires to the EC Delegations in those sub-Saharan African countries to which the EC has provided funding for mine action since 2002, and it conducted country missions to Angola, North and South Sudan, and Somalia (Somaliland and Puntland). Findings from these missions are reported in a separate volume.
