What is the project about

 Awareness of the Angolan children about the signs of mine action - Credit: UNDP

In 2003 the Government of Angola ( GoA) reformed its mine action institutional arrangements by separating the responsibility for the coordination of the mine action sector and the responsibility for implementing mine action operations. 

The government therefore created the National Intersectoral Commission for Humanitarian Demining and Assistance (CNIDAH) which is a commission that reports directly to the Council of Ministers and is responsible for the coordination, planning and organization of all mine action operations. 

The GoA also created the National Demining Institute (INAD) which is a public institute under the tutelage of the Minister of Social Assistance and Reintegration (MINARS) responsible for demining operations in Angola.  In 2005 the GoA established the Executive Commission for Demining (CED), which is chaired by the Minister of MINARS, to manage the demining operations of the Angolan Armed Forces (FAA), the Office for National Reconstruction (GRN) and the INAD.

This project will assist INAD to enhance its role as the national demining operator.  The specific outcome of the project will be consolidated access and security for development efforts in Angola through developing the capacity of INAD.

What have we accomplished so far?

The project have three main outputs:

  • Increased management and technical capacity of INAD at Headquarters level,
  • A dynamic and well supported Technical Demining School (ETD) that has renovated premises, enhanced management systems and an updated curriculum based on international and national mine action standards and
  • Seven of 15 INAD demining brigades trained and equipped and responding to development needs in Angola in a safe and effective way.
