Minefield and UXO Clearance Capacity for Burundi
Burundi is a country with the potential to comply with its legal obligations under the Ottawa Convention by clearing all known mined areas before the end of 2008. This project aims to continue clearance activities through to the declaration by the National Authority that Burundi has cleared all known dangerous areas in 2008.
The Burundi Mine Action Coordination Center (MACC) in Bujumbura supports the initiatives under this project. The FSD Mine and UXO Clearance Team/s will be tasked by the Burundi MACC with the clearance of higher priority suspected hazardous areas in the province of Bubanza.
