Key Developments

Chad provided an estimate of the size of cluster munition-contaminated areas and reported the frst clearance of land containing cluster munition remnants (CMR) in five years. The clearance was conducted by Mines Advisory Group (MAG) and Humanity and Inclusion (HI). European Union (EU) funding supported work by the Swiss Foundation for Mine Action (FSD) to clean up the national mine action database and improve reporting.

Recommendation for Action

  • Chad should elaborate a completion strategy for Article 4 implementation, together with an annual work plan for the survey and clearance of remaining CMR-contaminated areas.

  • Chad should introduce national standards specifc to CMR survey and clearance.

  • Chad’s Ministry of Economy and Planning should develop a resource mobilisation strategy for the mine action sector.

  • Chad’s national mine action authority should disaggregate CMR from other explosive ordnance in reporting results of survey and clearance.
