The UK has had an historic role in tackling the legacy of landmines and explosive remnants of war (ERW). We were one of the founding signatories to the Land Mine Ban Treaty in 1997. In the 20 years since then, the UK has supported some of the poorest countries around the world to clear landmines and ERW after conflict, building up considerable knowledge and experience in the mine action sector. UK funding for mine action saves lives, releases land for productive use and helps pave the way for further development programming. Through land mine and ERW clearance, mine risk education activities and capacity development of national and provincial authorities this programme will increase stability and security for people in countries affected by landmines and ERW.
