The purpose of a Landmine Impact Survey (LIS) is "to facilitate the prioritisation of human, material and financial resources supporting humanitarian mine action at the national, regional and global level." The LIS process provides a different approach by measuring the socioeconomic impact of landmines on affected communities. The global application of the LIS has successfully refocused attention away from a purely quantitative measurement of a mine and UXO threat to a qualitative assessment of impact on mine-affected communities.
