The project aims at strengthening the capacity of the Angolan government to assure the security and access of the population to mine-infested areas. Thus, it is expected that CNIDAH, at the end of the process, becomes an organization with functional, technical and institutional capacities capable of contributing to the achievement of the objectives set out in the National Mine Action Strategic Plan for 2006-2013. Thus, at the end of the project, it is expect that it contributes to:

a) the reduction of mine danger in communities considered as being of high priority by 2011, facilitating access and the movement of people and goods and, finally, the civic participation of the citizens and engagement in economic and productive activities;

b) reduction of risk of low and medium priority communities by 2013, facilitating access and the movement of people and goods and, finally, the civic participation of citizens and engagement in economic and productive activities;

c) national capacity being fully established and developed for the implementation of mine action in Angola;

d) an advanced mine action programme, comparable to the best mine action programmes worldwide, being established.

e) the Angolan State fulfilling the commitment of the country as a party State to the Ottawa Convention, recognizing the dimension of the problem of mine infestation in the country;

f) accurate reporting of the status of mine action in Angola through progress reports
