Project / Programme Title
Accelerated Demining Programme
Brief Project Description
The Accelerated Demining Programme (ADP) was established in late 1994, during the ONUMOZ peace keeping mission in Mozambique, as a “Swords to Ploughshares” programme to enable demobilised soldiers from opposing political factions to make a useful contribution to the rebuilding and development of Mozambique by clearing landmines (ADP currently employs 389 Mozambique nationals, mostly demobilised soldiers). In May 1995 the GoM established the National Mine Clearance Commission (NMCC) and the National Demining Commission (CND) to co-ordinate mine action. In June 1999, the Council of Ministers approved new legislation to develop the capacity of the GoM to manage mine action and to improve responsiveness to donors and operators. CND was restructured as the National Demining Institute, “Instituto Nacional de Desminagem” (IND), with a mandate to establish and maintain the facilitation, co-ordination, supervision and management of a NMAP, including maintaining transparency between the administrative and regulatory level (IND), and the operational level (NGOs and commercial operators). IND is not involved in day-to-day mine action operations, except in the execution of quality assurance and the maintenance of standards. In addition, and as part of its strategy towards developing a national capacity, the GoM has recently directed that ADP is to transform itself into a non-governmental organisation (NGO). Therefore, the purpose of this phase of the project is to complete the transformation of ADP from a UNDP NEX project into a Mozambique demining organisation with a legal status and responsibilities under Mozambique law. At the same time ADP must be able to attract donor support, while continuing demining operations and related activities in Mozambique and beyond.
