Danish Demining Group

Addressing immediate threats to life and limbs by explosive remnants of war

Mine Action

After years of armed conflict, unexploded and stockpiled mines and other explosive remnants of war continue to pose safety risks to populations in many parts of the world. Danish Demining Group (DDG) started as a Mine Action unit within the Danish Refugee Council and mine clearance still accounts for most operations worldwide. However, the increased recognition of the need to address armed violence has resulted in a broad approach that includes the clearance of mines and unexploded ordnance as one aspect of DDG’s Armed Violence Reduction operations. Through cooperation with community members, DDG removes and destroys mines and other explosive remnants of war in order to reduce accidents and prevent their future use as tools of violence.

In addition to active demolition operations, DDG provides Mine Risk Education to community members in order to impart safe conduct in potentially hazardous areas.
