2017 Cluster Munition Remnants Report for Lao PDR

The report offers the information on UXO demining in Laos. In 2016, analysis of data in the Information Management System for Mine Action (IMSMA) database revealed many errors requiring a major data clean-up exercise potentially slowing implementation of a badly needed national baseline survey of contamination. Procedures and standards for the survey were again the subject of extensive discussion between the National Regulatory Agency (NRA) and operators in 2016, but without a conclusion being reached. Coordination of survey and clearance required strengthening at provincial level and between provinces and the capital.
