GICHD have been involved in Lebanon for a decade. The GICHD has provided significant support to the Lebanon Mine Action Center (LMAC). The support provided by GICHD is particularly centred around support for the management of LMAC programmes and operations.
GICHD’s assistance has also seen them aid LMAC in training efforts, such as those for mechanical demining and land release, and facilitate workshops in Lebanon on demining and other clearance efforts. Their work in Lebanon has led to a number of studies and publications, such as on the impacts of landmines and ERW on the country and its citizens.
