Annual Project Report 2012: Support to the Tajikistan Mine Action Programme.
Tajikistan is the only country in Central Asia with a structured national mine action programme. Since 2003, TMAC provides coordination for all aspects of mine action. The MRE and Victims assistance (VA) programmes are undertaken in partnership with relevant national and international agencies and NGOs. TMAC is in a position to appropriately manage providing tasks for mine clearance organizations, conducting Quality Assurance (QA), Quality Control (QC), keeping international networking, and managing and continuously upgrading the information management system. Clearance of mines/ERW is ensured by international and national agencies such as FSD, Norwegian People’s Aid (NPA) and Union of Sappers of Tajikistan (UST)/Ministry of Defense (humanitarian demining unit).
