USA backs around US$ 2 million for UXO in Laos



(KPL)The US government has made a decision to approve new budget around US$ 2 million for Unexplored Ordnance clearance action remaining to Lao PDR.
On Thursday 20th September 2007, an Memorandum of Understanding Signing Ceremony was took place at the Ministry of Labor and Social Welfare in Vientiane. It was jointly signed by Dr Maligna Saignavong, Director of the National Regulatory Authority (NRA), Mr Bounpone Sayasenh, Director of Unexplored Ordnance (UXO) Lao and Mr Phil Bean, Country Manager For Armor Group North America and witnessed by Mr Laoly Faiphengyua, Vice Minister of Labour of Social Welfare, the Ambassador of the United States of America to Laos, HE Ravic R Huso .

The agreement, worth US$ 2 million, provides for an ongoing support to the Lao government to help deal with the impact of UXO and other explosive remnants of war. The support will provide US$ 982,000 of funding during the coming year and over US$ 1 million in the second year. For UXO Lao this will support their UXO clearance and education operations in the provinces such as Savannakhet and Champassak provinces. In addition Armor Group North America will provide four international advisors to support both national UXO organizations.

In Lao PDR, the US government has supported the UXO sector since it was established in 1995, with total contributions to date of more than US$ 25 million. This phase of support is channeled through Armor Group and designed to meet the current needs as identified by the NRA and UXO Lao.

At the same time, Armor Group disclosed that it is providing a specialist team of advisors with long experience to Laos as soon as possible, and they are also supported by staff from the International NGO MAG which has been active in UXO action in Laos since 1994. The technical support project will work with national organizations in both operational coordination and the implementation of quality control systems to help ensure the best outcomes from the UXO program.

Armor Group has wide experience in mine action and are currently working in support of projects in Albania, Lebanon, Mosambique, Nepal, and Sudan. In addition, the company provides a range of services from risk management to security to mine action and weapons destruction and currently employs over 10,000 staff in 38 countries.

The US is the largest source of funding for UXO clearance. I've heard they would like to give more but they reach a point where more funds just get wasted. As more are trained and systems in place to use the money I'd think more woiould be spent.
