UNDP proceeds with its support for demining activities in
Azerbaijan, Charu Bist, UNDP Resident Representative in Azerbaijan,
“One of the new priorities that we, together with ANAMA, plan to
address is the gender and environmental components of the demining
activities. The gender component is focusing on women's role in
mining clearance. In this regard, female demining teams could be
potentially created,” she said.
The research has also been conducted on the environmental
impacts of the demining process, which is also a very important
issue to be tackled, she added.
UNDP Resident Representative also mentioned different projects
within the UNDP's support for demining, which includes capacity
building, equipment provision, and ensuring that support is given
in accordance with international practices.
“Demining currently is a really important priority for the
government of Azerbaijan, and UNDP has been a partner of ANAMA
since 1990 - one of our long-standing partnerships. Over the years
we have mobilized a vast amount of funding together with different
international organizations to address the issue,” Bist
