Tenders for Execution

According to the International Mine Action Standards (IMAS) mine risk education (MRE) is defined as »activities which seek to reduce the risk of injury from mines and ERW by raising awareness and promoting behavioural change, including public information dissemination, education and training, and community mine action liaison«.

A 2007 issued Guide to Mine Action identified three main goals of MRE which are interlinked and interdependent:
- to minimise deaths and injuries from landmines and ERW,
to reduce the social and economic impact from landmines and ERW,
to support relief and development work.

MRE activities target groups in population of mine affected communities, who are either unaware or uniformed of landmine and ERW threat, those who are aware of safe behaviour but reckless in their actions and those who are because of socio-economic distress forced to enter unsafe and dangerous areas.
