Syria Humanitarian Response Plan 2019

Humanitarian response plan | Rev: 2.4


Mine Action AoR
Mine Action AoR
Protection: Mine Action AOR

Explosive hazards contamination will continue to represent a major protection concern in Syria. Aside from the direct impact on the population, explosive hazard contamination hampers access to basic service infrastructure such as schools, hospitals and water stations, at the same hampering humanitarian assistance.
In 2019, the Mine Action AoR response will include all pillars of humanitarian mine action: risk education, explosive hazard identification and clearance, and victim assistance. Risk education tailored by age, gender, localized threats, and specific activity patterns, will remain an essential component to reduce the risk posed by explosive hazards and prevent civilian casualties. It will provide civilians, including humanitarian workers, with the knowledge and awareness to reduce the likelihood of exposure and the risk of accidents.
The identification of confirmed and suspected hazardous areas, will also be a priority for the Mine Action AoR, to inform at-risk communities of local threats, enable tailored risk education messaging, and assist in needs-based planning. This will provide a more granular view of the scope and scale of contamination and lay the foundation for future clearance operations. Similarly, comprehensive explosive hazard clearance is critical to reduce the impact of explosive hazards, to definitively remove contamination threats and to render areas safe for the civilian population. Finally, the humanitarian mine action response will seek to expand the availability and provision of specialized services for persons with disabilities, including survivors of explosive hazards and their families. It will also promote the inclusion of persons with disabilities in its response and other relevant services, such as education and socio-economic assistance.
