More mine-free land released to Cambodian farmers
Feb 9, 2015
Mine clearance operations supported by UNDP have just released 26.5 square kilometres of land for productive use by Cambodian farmers after it was cleared of landmines and explosive remnants of war (ERW) in 2014. The land is expected to benefit some 35,000 villagers – 54 percent of whom are women – in three northwestern provinces of Battambang, Banteay Meanchey and Pailin.
