Mali is confronted with a problem of weapons and contamination of explosive risk, following long-standing and recent armed conflicts. The presence of explosive remnants of war (ERW), improvised explosive devices (IEDs) and unsecured stocks of weapons and ammunition (obsolete, abandoned or neglected) pose a serious threat to civilians and MINUSMA and humanitarian personnel operating in the country.

In accordance with these mandates, the United Nations Mine Action Service (UNMAS) has engaged UNOPS to implement a mine action program in Mali. The UNMAS mine action program in Mali seeks to:

Reducing the explosive threat to MINUSMA and UN staff;
