Iraq appointed a new Directorate of Mine Action (DMA) director in September 2020 and a majority of the heads of key DMA departments also changed. Measures to combat the spread of COVID-19, including international airport closure, lockdowns, curfews, and visa restrictions, led to temporary suspension of operations and hampered movements of international staff in and out of the country while obstructing the deployment of survey and clearance teams. The amount of cluster munition-contaminated area released through survey and clearance declined for the second successive year.
Iraq should provide timely and comprehensive reports on cluster munition remnants (CMR) survey and clearance, providing data disaggregated by operator and region for Federal Iraq and the Kurdistan Region of Iraq (KRI).
The DMA and implementing partners should address and resolve persistent data inconsistencies in reported results of survey and clearance.
Iraq should provide an annual work plan setting out goals for CMR survey and clearance.
