UKR UNDP Innovative finance mine action


To date an estimated 25% of Ukrainian territory has been exposed to active conflict and may be contaminated with landmines and explosive ordnances. Under the umbrella of UNDP, experts from the finance sector and the mine action sector will assess ways to involve private investors in the long-term financing of mine action in Ukraine. The UK, the Netherlands and Switzerland contribute to the financing of this study.

Contesto To date an estimated 25% of Ukrainian territory (approx. 175,000 km2) has been exposed to active conflict and may be contaminated with landmines and EO (explosive ordnances). The reality is that only a fraction of this will require clearance, and so survey activities are crucial to better define the true nature and extent of contamination. 
Obiettivi The primary objective of this project is to set the foundations for an innovative finance facility to increase funding available for mine action in Ukraine in the immediate and longterm, based on a central aim of combining government donors and leveraging private sector investments.
