MINE ACTION LOCALIZATION

The MA AoR is dedicated to supporting global commitments on localization throughout its work streams. This includes increasing local government and civil society leadership and participation in mine action coordination mechanisms, improving coordination and information management processes and making funding accessible to local partners at national and sub-national levels. Through localization the MA AoR seeks to include national actors as full and equal partners and capitalize on their comparative advantages. Developing local capacity will support prevention strategies, improve the quality, rapidity and scale of the response, reinforce the resilience of national systems and strengthen the means to realize accountability to affected people.

“No matter how small or big the budget or scope of a project is, it must always start and end with proper community liaison.”
