VI. Illustrative Example of Significant Achievement

Illustrative Example

Humanitarian Demining

In FY 2003, more than 30 mine-affected countries in the U.S. Humanitarian Demining Program benefited from the clearance of land suitable for agriculture, pastoral use, and as potential for restoring economic infrastructure. These countries also witnessed the safe return of tens of thousands of refugees and internally displaced persons, who were able to travel on formerly mine-affected roads. Finally, several countries achieved Sustainment status - the ability to implement and manage their own humanitarian demining program - while others were able to declare themselves mine-safe.
