On 17 May the Deputy Head of Mission, Ms Daniela Dempf, has participated at the National Mine Action Conference organized by the Cambodian Mine Action Authority CMAA.

In the framework of the Conference the National Mine Action Strategy 2018-2025 – Toward a Mine Free Cambodia - has been presented.

The German Government has provided more than 22 million Euros for mine clearance activities in the country since 1994. More than 1.700 square kilometers of contaminated land have since been returned to the local population for housing and livelihoods.

Over the years, the number of mine victims has been significantly reduced. The contributions of Germany and other international donors have been honored by awarding the medal of Royal Order of Shametrei-Mahasena to the government representatives by the Prime Minister Samdech Akka Moha Sena Padei Techo Hun Sen in the framework of the conference.
