Myanmar still has no functioning national mine action programme. Non-technical survey conducted by three international organisations in 2017 marked a significant step forward for operators previously restricted to risk education and limited community mapping but the government and ethnic groups do not yet permit clearance. In addition, allegations of new mine use persisted in 2017.
- Myanmar should accede to the Anti-Personnel Mine Ban Convention (APMBC) as a matter of priority.
- The Myanmar army (Tatmadaw) and armed groups should stop all use of anti-personnel mines.
- Myanmar should accelerate non-technical survey, authorise international marking of hazardous areas, and permit accredited operators to conduct clearance and explosive ordnance disposal.
- Myanmar should establish a national mine action authority to plan and coordinate comprehensive humanitarian mine action.
