Where UXO Action Occurs

The UXO/Mine Action sector in Laos works across all 10 severely contaminated provinces, and the priority has been on the 47 poorest districts in the country, as defined by the Government of Laos’ National Socio-economic Development Agenda.  Moving forward, a more nuanced approach will be used to take into account a broader range of factors including sub-government strategy, poverty levels, usability of land, the anticipated social and economic benefits of that land, and fundamental human rights.

The level and location of activity is dependent on many factors; the major ones being resource levels, annual work plans, provincial and district author plans, and responding to emergency needs.
