Performance Commentary

Algeria completed demining in late 2016, several months in advance of its extended Anti-Personnel Mine Ban Convention (APMBC) Article 5 deadline of 1 April 2017.

Recommendation for Action

  • Algeria should clarify how much manual clearance took place in 2016 as opposed to release by other means.
  • Algeria should ensure an adequate capacity exists to address any mines or other munitions that are encountered in the future.
