Landmine Removal in the Hands of Women
Landmines are buried in conflict-torn areas in Asia and elsewhere in the world. Even after the conflicts end for which they were buried, the mines continue to inflict harm. Each year, they kill or injure some 3,600 people. The United Nations is conducting a project to recruit women to engage in mine-clearing operations in their communities and help accelerate post-conflict reconstruction. We talked to the head of the UN Mine Action Service about what women, in particular, have to offer.
