    Tajik Female Demining Team, Spring 2014

    Gender is a priority issue for the United Nations. In particular, the United Nations Inter-Agency Mine Action Strategy states that ‘United Nations mine action work plans will address the impact of mine action on women, girls, boys and men and seek to involve them to the extent possible in the planning and implementation of mine action initiatives’. For many years, the UNDP TMAC made significant efforts to create an environment to promote the establishment of a female demining team (FDT) within the mine action framework. In 2010, the invitation to Norwegian People’s Aid in Tajikistan to implement land release tasks in the border areas of Tajikistan with Afghanistan opened up the way to investigating the experience applicable to forming a FDT. It is well known that the NPA has an experienced role in organizing and supporting FDTs in mine-affected countries. The NPA’s perspective is to support gender equality and women’s empowerment in mine-affected communities.

    This year, commemoration of Mine Action Day will be facilitated by the newly-established Tajikistan National Mine Action Centre (TNMAC). The TNMAC received its official status in January 2014 by decree of the President of the Republic Tajikistan. Within the framework of support for the Tajikistan Mine Action Programme, UNDP is assisting TNMAC in promoting and organizing this significant event devoted to the International Day of Mine Awareness and Assistance in Mine Action on 12 April in Dushanbe, Tajikistan. The celebration of this event will be supported by the Government of Tajikistan, UNDP, implementing partners, NGOs and international organizations involved in humanitarian mine action activities in Tajikistan. Hence, this event will raise awareness among Tajikistan’s population that every effort is required to effectively address the remaining problems related to landmines and the explosive remnants of war (ERW) in the country. Since 2003, UNDP within the TMAC project has supported mine action related activities as well as built national capacity in Tajikistan. During the last 10 years UNDP/TMAC has played a crucial role in management, coordination and planning, as well as monitoring and evaluation of all components (Land Release, Stockpile Destruction, Mine Risk Education, Victim Assistance and Advocacy) of the Mine Action Programme in Tajikistan.
