This study was commissioned by YEMAC and the Geneva International Centre for Humanitarian Demining (GICHD) with the following objectives:

1 - To assess the overall socio-economic returns from mine clearance investments

2 - To make a preliminary assessment of complementary development initiatives for mine-affected communities.

3 - To enhance the capacity of YEMAC to conduct future assessments of socio-economic benefits from mine action; assess the community Landmine Impact Scores as a tool for identifying impact and determining priorities for action; advise on how to design ad conduct on-going socio-economic surveys relating to ERW; advise on integrating social differentiation within LIS survey protocols, and advise on enhancements to YEMAC's monitoring and evaluation system.

The findings of the survey are presented in three sections:

- The impact of demining on communities

- Development opportunities for demined communities

- Considerations for YEMAC
