  • UXO sector annual report 2014
  • Among the key achievements in the UXO sector is the great progress in reducing the number of UXO accidents in Lao PDR. From an average of 300 UXO casualties annually as recently as 2008, the number has dropped to 56 in 2012 and to 41 in 2013. This is due, in part, to ongoing Risk Education in contaminated provinces and also to clearance of UXO by a growing number of operators.
