Each red dot of the map attached shows where a landmine accident occurred in Cambodia between 2006 and 2010. The blue area on the map shows HALO’s area of operation in Cambodia. Clearly, we are working in the most mine-affected part of the country. HALO’s policy of targeting mineclearance onto areas with the highest accident rates has substantially contributed to a reduction in casualties and promoted wide‐scale development in the northwest border region. However, despite these efforts Cambodia remains one of the most mine‐affected countries in the world. As such, humanitarian mineclearance is of critical importance to the rural population of northwest Cambodia.
