Humanitarian Demining organizations Halo Trust, Mines Advisory Group and Norwegian People’s Aid released Clearing the Mines, a joint survey by humanitarian mine clearance organizations which ranks countries efforts to eradicate the threat of landmines within their borders. This is the third report to rank national mine clearance efforts.

The report states: Myanmar is the lowest ranked mine action programme in this report, with the government’s refusal to allow mine clearance preventing a peace dividend from being realised.

National mine clearance efforts are ranked by 10 performance indicators, including how much a country demonstates it understands its landmine problem, how timely and efficient its clearance efforts are, if there is national funding and standards in place and its ability to report on its efforts, among others.
