Guidelines to enhance the use of landmine/ERW hazard information by economic development actors (Nov 2009).. by Charles Downs (principal investigator).. Informed by a year-long study of existing best practices of national mine action authorities, the "Guidelines to enhance the use of landmine/ERW hazard information by economic development actors" (.. click here for the Guidelines.. ) provide practical advice to those seeking to increase the integration of mine action with development.. As the number of new landmine/ERW victims continues to fall in most countries, the provision of effective support to development becomes increasingly important.. The "Guidelines" highlight the importance of proactive national mine action center efforts to determine what hazard information is important to the success of specific projects of individual development actors, and the need to usefully support them as "clients" and not simply consider them as "stakeholders".. The "Guidelines" address specific measures to increase mine action program capacity to respond to development actor needs through improved information, survey and clearance when required, together with the importance of including the potential need for and cost of clearance in development project budgets, whether these are funded by national budget, loan or private resources.. Together these measures will help improve current planning and enhance future relevance and funding for mine action programs.. Funding for this project was provided by the U..
