Short Description:

Overall goal

Im Rahmen dieses Projektes werden vier mobile Entminungsteams des bosnisch-herzegowinischen Mine Action Centers (BH MAC) mit Equipment durch den ITF (International Trust Fund for Demining) unterstützt. Bosnien und Herzegowina gilt als eines der meist verminten Länder der Erde und - als direkte Kriegsfolge - als das am großflächigsten verminte Land in Südosteuropa. Diese Minenpräsenz gilt nicht nur als ein Hindernis für den baulichen Wiederaufbau, sondern auch für die wirtschaftliche Entwicklung. Die bosnisch-herzegowinische Entminungstrategie hat zum Ziel, das Land bis zum Jahr 2019 als minenfrei einzustufen.
