Mine Risk Awareness Campaigns
Campaigns refer to informing a broad range of people about landmines and unexploded ordnance through activities promoting awareness and behavioral change. The beneficiaries of the campaigns include teachers, students, women, opinion leaders, religious figures, and security forces.
Celebrating International Mine Awareness Day
Since 2012 until present, the Executive Secretariat celebrated April 4th to raise awareness about the risks of mines with the international community. This year the Executive Secretariat celebrated for a week in schools with students and educators in different municipalities in Matruh Governorate under the campaign “A Life Free of Mines”.
Community Mine Action Liaison
The process of exchanging information between national authorities, the Executive Secretariat, and field officers to inform the community about the demining locations, marked areas, and cleared lands. In return, locals inform authorities on the locations of contaminated land. This exchange assists in planning the location of coming MRE activities. A team of 5 will work on-field for future MRE activities to cover all municipalities in the NWC. The role of this team is to implement MRE activities on field and in households to reach out to people.
