Summary

There were a number of transformative achievements in the UXO Sector in 2014. These include: the development of a new survey methodology that provides a stronger evidence-based system for survey; the new Concept of Operations for UXO Lao, which prioritizes the identification of Confirmed Hazardous Areas (CHA) and very quickly led to an increase of the number of UXO cleared per hectare; and the development of a Capacity Assessment of both the NRA and UXO Lao which led to both institutions defining medium and long term strategies for organisational development. The UXO/Mine Victim Assistance Strategy was also formally approved in 2014 to target deficiencies in the existing provisions of support to victims and survivors.
