Cambodia's landmine contamination is the result of a protracted sequence of internal and regional conflicts that affected the country from the mid-1960s until the end of 1998. Anti-personnel mine contamination in the north-western regions bordering Thailand are amongst the highest concentrations in the world. Other areas of the country, mainly in the east, have been impacted primarily by the presence of explosive remnants of war (ERW), including cluster munitions.
Humanitarian mine action in Cambodia started in 1992. To ensure proper management, effectiveness, and efficiency of the mine action sector, the Royal Government of Cambodia (RGC) established the Cambodian Mine Action and Victim Assistance Authority (CMAA) by Royal Decree in 2000. The CMAA is mandated to coordinate, monitor, and regulate demining and ERW clearance activities and assistance to mine/ERW victims.
As of April 2022, Cambodia’s mine action sector had collectively cleared and released 2,379 km2 of contaminated land, destroyed 1,136,494 anti-personnel mines, 26,014 anti-tank mines, and 2,997,328 items of ERW, including cluster munitions. However, the deadly legacy of unexploded ordnance and other ERW contamination has restricted livelihood activities, hindered development, and caused almost 65,000 human casualties, including nearly 20,000 deaths and over 9,000 amputations since 1979.
The CMAA estimates that Cambodia still has 1,991 km2 of contaminated land, of which 736 km2 is contaminated by landmines. The Cambodian mine action sector efforts are currently guided by the National Mine Action Strategy (NMAS) 2018-2025 and its respective three-year implementation plans (current 2021-2023). The NMAS is envisioned towards achieving a known-mine free Cambodia by 2025, while the RGC has also adopted a localised Sustainable Development Goal 18 (CSDG 18: End the negative impact of Mine/ERW and promote victim assistance) in pursuit of the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.
Nationally implemented through the CMAA, the Clearing for Results (CfR) project has been supporting the RGCs mine action efforts since 2006. Clearing for Results, Phase IV (CfRIV: 2020-2025), financially funded by the RGC, Australia, New Zealand, Republic of Korea, and UNDP, has been designed to support the transition of a humanitarian-driven mine action sector to one that utilizes the results of mine action to support targeted action for poverty reduction and human development. The project aims to support mine/ERW clearance and land release, create pathways for accelerated development in villages that have been declared mine-free, and strengthen the national regulation and coordination capacity in the demining sector for sustainable residual threat management.
CfRIV contributes to the United Nations Development Assistance Framework (UNDAF) 2019–2023 Outcome 2: By 2023, women and men in Cambodia, in particular those marginalized and vulnerable, benefit from expanded opportunities for decent work and technological innovations; and participate in a growing, more productive and competitive economy, that is also fairer and environmentally sustainable; and the UNDP Country Programme Document (CPD) Output 1.3: Left-behind and mine-affected communities have access to mine-free land for better livelihoods.
The CfRIV project has the following three outputs:
Output 1: The prioritized mine-impacted villages are declared mine-free
Output 2: Affected and vulnerable populations provided with expanded opportunities for decent livelihoods, inclusion, and wellbeing in accordance with national development priorities
Output 3: Strengthened mine action sector management and national capacities that address residual threats
