Key Developments

Peru cleared just over 21,000m2 of mined area in 2022, almost three times the output of the previous year. Tiwinza is reported to be mine free as of the end of 2022. Peru should be able to meet its Anti-Personnel Mine Ban Convention (APMBC) Article 5 clearance deadline provided it can secure the necessary funding to increase its land release output to earlier levels and secure a better understanding of remaining anti-personnel (AP) mined area.

Recommendations for Action

  • Peru should survey remaining mined areas to produce a more accurate baseline of contamination.
  • Peru should develop and implement new policies for land release to ensure that clearance is part of a comprehensive land release methodology.
  • Peru should provide an updated work plan through to completion of Article 5.
