Landmines: Legacy of Conflict : a Manual for Development Workers
Landmines: Legacy of Conflict is written for development and emergency workers in mine-affected countries, and for policy-makers and planners. The changing technology of mines and mine-deployment is explained, with photographs and descriptions of the most common types of mine. The book describes the vulnerability of particular groups within rural communities, advises on how best to avoid hazardous areas, considers activities that mine-affected communities can undertake, and suggests measures which could be introduced at local and international levels to deal with the problem.
A co-publication with the Mines Advisory Group.
