Jordan has been working throughout the last two decades to free its land from the threat of landmines, due to the threat it posed to the social and economic development within the affected regions and to the safety of individuals living there.
The National Committee for Demining and Rehabilitation was able to announce Jordan as a land free of mines from all known mined areas.
The training efforts include many related to bomb disposal, safety and identification, in regard to many forms of explosives.
The aim of the NCDR is to enhance the peace building process by diminishing social, economical and environmental impacts of landmines and remnants of war in a way that provides a better humanitarian environment allowing people and counties to prosper and develop.
NCDR hope to achieve there aims through comprehensive leadership and technical guidance on eradicating landmines and explosive remnants of war.
