Mine action activities coordinated by UNMAS have positively impacted the lives and livelihoods of persons in conflict-torn societies, including Afghanistan, Chad, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Lebanon, Nepal, Gaza in the Occupied Palestinian Territories, Somalia, Sudan and Western Sahara. They have contributed to the UN vision of a “world free of the threat of mines and explosive remnants of war (ERW), where individuals and communities live in a safe environment conducive to development, and where the needs of mine and ERW victims are met, and they are fully integrated into their societies.”
