IN IRAQ, THE EXPLOSIVE HAZARD PROBLEM IS COMPLEX, UNPRECEDENTED AND EXCEEDS EXISTING AND AVAILABLE RESPONSE CAPACITIES


According to UN Iraq 2017 Humanitarian Response Plan up to 1.5 million people are likely to require some form of assistance in Mosul. This includes up to 400.000 people may flee western parts of city in coming months, and residents who remain in their homes.

In Iraq, the explosive hazard problem is complex, unprecedented and exceeds existing and available response capacities. Especially in retaken areas explosive hazards impede urgently needed emergency response efforts.

Considering the situation and the humanitarian needs of the region IBC started its Bashiqa Sub-district emergency assistance programme. According to IBC policies within the scope of security measures to be taken, due to the sensitivity of the area IBC field implementation teams received Mine Risk Education – MRE Training. Training was planned and coordinated within the cooperation of IBC, UNMAS and MAG Erbil Offices and given by the MAG (Mines Advisory Group) Iraq Liaison Coordinators under the concept of “risk education” to prevent death and injury from landmines, unexploded ordnance and other explosive weapons by raising awareness of the problems and promoting safer behavior.
