Our Work - Crisis Prevention & Recovery

Despite significant achievements in disarmament and demobilization of ex combatants, clearance of mines, peace building and human security, significant security challenges remain. The decades of civil war and the recent insurgency have generated considerable amounts of weapons, mines and ammunition across the country. Other salient challenges towards rule of law and livelihood include slow pace of police reform process, individual power structures backed by illegal armed groups and the proliferation of opium economy. Proliferation of landmines and vulnerability to natural disasters such as drought, flood and earthquakes remain a major deterrent to development.
