Women in Mine Action: Clearing Landmines and ExplosivesKatherine A. Thichava
The United Nations Mine Action Service (UNMAS) plays a huge role in the long-term stabilization goals of places formerly rocked by conflict.
Interestingly, the staff of UNMAS is almost 50% female. This video presents some of UNMAS’s officers explaining what they seek to achieve and how mine action work brings them satisfaction. Officers from Afghanistan to Somalia describe what they do to save lives and help re-establish stability.
