NMAS awareness course on “Urban Threat Assessment and Building Clearance”

The five-day “Urban Threat Assessment and Building Clearance” course is aimed to increase National Mine Action Authorities’ (NMAAs) awareness of common procedures when considering Improvised Explosive Device (IED) contamination.

The course focuses on urban threat assessment and procedures for building clearance in order to enhance the understanding to carry out surveys. The course also focuses on challenges faced by operators conducting clearance of explosive ordnance (EO), including IEDs, particularly in the urban environment.

The course provides a forum for NMAAs that are experiencing this type of contamination to discuss challenges and share possible solutions that are considered or have been implemented.
