Description
 
2013 marks 20 years of U.S. Government agencies working together to lead the international donor community in supporting the clearance of landmines and explosive remnants of war (ERW), as well as the destruction of at-risk and unsecured weapons and munitions. The U.S. first became involved in humanitarian demining in 1988 by sending a team to assess the landmine situation in Afghanistan. In 1993, the Depts. of State (DOS) and Defense (DOD) and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) formed an interagency partnership to coordinate U.S. humanitarian demining programs globally. This report examines how far we have come in two decades of sustained support for humanitarian mine action (HMA) and details the programs and partnerships that comprise the U.S. Conventional Weapons Destruction (CWD) Program, which includes HMA. Since 1993, the U.S. has contributed over $2 billion to more than 90 countries around the world to reduce the harmful worldwide effects of at-risk, illicitly proliferated, and indiscriminately used conventional weapons of war. In FY2012 (FY2012), DOS provided more than $149 million in CWD assistance to 35 countries, helping post-conflict communities and countries recover and rebuild. Figures. This is a print on demand report.
