For the Tajikistan Mine Action Sector

Recommendations 18-27:

• Continue to work closely together and share resources.

• Participate in the development of the next national mine action strategy and other strategies for resource mobilization, communications etc.

• Continue to improve land release methodologies.

• Continue to liaise closely with GICHD, OSCE and UNDP and seek their support for resource mobilization, capacity building and technical support.

• Maintain clear roles and responsibilities and transparent financial and administrative procedures.

• Ensure that quality assurance is maintained. Consider requesting regular reviews from an external party.

• Examine the feasibility of physically clearing all remaining contamination. If some areas are determined to be impossible to clear using existing methods and technology, agree a strategy for marking as well as ways to communicate effectively the necessity of marking to the relevant international regulatory bodies.

• Individual organizations that have commissioned studies into the different aspect of mine action should consider sharing them with all mine action stakeholders to maximize effective use of resources and avoid duplication of efforts. Use existing strategies and assessments - many of them contain useful recommendations and advice that is still relevant.

• Mainstream gender and diversity through the next national mine action strategy and implementation of mine action activities as articulated in the 2017 gender and diversity strategy.
