Flag Bar  

Changing roles and responsibilities among U.S. Government agencies participating in the U.S. Humanitarian Demining Program and the rapid expansion of the Program have necessitated an update in the Interagency Humanitarian Demining Strategic Plan. This revision is based on experiences and lessons learned over the last few years on humanitarian demining efforts. This new strategic plan should accelerate and make more effective U.S. government efforts to make mine-affected countries around the world mine-safe.
