Clearing for Results - Annual Report 2012
Aug 28, 2013
While 2011 was a first year of national implementation of Clearing for Results Phase 2 (CFR---II) and a transition year with challenges to overcome, 2012 was a year of consolidation where the Cambodian Mine Action and Victim Assistance Authority (CMAA) took a greater ownership on the implementation of the project.
The CMAA further moved towards its ambition to coordinate the mine action sector through a programme--‐based approach ensuring alignment of resources to priority areas and efficiency of the sector. The consensually developed project review mechanism is an essential step in that direction and its use and implementation by all will be central in ensuring CMAA meets its goal.
The Baseline Survey (BLS) was one of the central elements of the Article 5 Extension Request and of the National Mine Action Strategy (NMAS). By leading the financial and technical effort, Clearing for Results has largely contributed to the completion of the BLS in 124 districts all over the country. The leadership taken by CMAA in carrying out the BLS has been fundamental in convincing other operators and donors to participate and deliver the results in time by December 2012. These results will give CMAA greater ability to conduct planning and prioritization of needs.
