About the DRC programme:
Between 1996 and 2003, the Democratic Republic of Congo was the site of the most deadly conflict since World War Two, which led to as many as 5.4 million deaths and left the country contaminated by landmines and unexploded ordnance. MAG established a Humanitarian Mine Action Program in DRC in 2004 and established its first Arms Management and Destruction (AMD) / Physical Security and Stockpile Management (PSSM) program in DRC in 2006. We are also the only non-governmental organisation accredited to carry out arms management and destruction initiatives in the country. The DRC programme more recently ceased its mine action project, and is currently focused on the implementation of the arms management and destruction initiatives.
