Demining

Demining

We realised that there was insufficient education about Demining and a lack actual mine clearance operations being undertaken in Iraq.  Anyone looking at a map of Iraq's minefields and remnants of war would be astonished that it was possible to move around, almost anywhere, but especially near international and domestic borders.  There was an utter shortage of humanitarian deminers in Iraq.

Action taken: We supplied demining trainers to Iraq’s national Authority at no cost.

Value created: The Authority gained the credentials to manage demining programmes and were awarded contracts, parts of some of which were subcontracted to commercial contractors such as us.  This proved to be a virtuous circle and resulted in our demining operations being promoted within various US Government agencies.
