The Explosive Remnants of War

How it Impacts on Millennium Development Goals

The Explosive Remnants of War (ERW) in their many guises, include – unexploded ordnance, cluster bomb’s, abandoned stockpiles of ammunition, minefields or former battle fields. These hazardous areas don’t distinguish between soldier and civilian, farmers at work or children at play. They recognize no ceasefire. For countries recovering from conflict, these devices impede socio-economic development and the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals.

These devices: make agricultural land unusable, restrict access to water, keep schools from being built and students and teachers from attending classes and hinder the construction and maintenance of infrastructure.

More than 65 countries are contaminated with landmines and ERW.

Understanding the ERW Threat and Empowering Others

Is your mission is to serve people in need by expanding their ability to understand what ERW Threat is?  Or is it at a higher level advising policy makers assisting partners to manage projects, infrastructure and procurement in a sustainable, safe and efficient manner?

With a clear and thorough understanding of the ERW threat posed in many countries you could empower your colleagues, partners and beneficiaries with ERW awareness which will ultimately assist in the recovery of land from ERW and keeping personnel and civilians safe.  Land is the very life blood of communities, and their ability to have land released to them to continue with their lives and their livelihoods, their commerce and the functioning of their civil sociaety.  To understand and act on the signs of the ERW threat will assist commercial partners to have access to sites, with projects ranging from building schools and hospitals, to procuring goods and services and training local personnel, providing employment and empowering the population.

Recognising and reporting the presence of ERW allows organisations like ours to work closely with governments and communities to ensure increased economic, social and environmental sustainability for the projects we support, with a focus on developing national capacity.

Working in some of the world’s most challenging environments, our vision is to advance sustainable implementation practices in development, humanitarian and peacebuilding contexts, always satisfying or surpassing partner expectations.
