MAG (Mines Advisory Group) IMPACT October 2016

IMPACT: SAVING LIVES IN SOUTH EAST ASIA (OCTOBER 2016)

The figures are simply mind-numbing. Over 270 million cluster bombs fell on Laos and up to 80 million did not detonate. More than half of all
cluster munition casualties in the world are in Laos.

This edition of IMPACT goes beyond the numbers to the people at the heart of MAG’s work – the people who you help.


IMPACT Middle East and Emergencies

IMPACT: MIDDLE EAST AND EMERGENCIES (APRIL 2016)

How can families who've fled the violence in the Middle East return home to villages that have become riddled with landmines and unexploded bombs during their absence?

This edition of IMPACT focuses on MAG’s emergency work in this troubled region, where in Iraq alone the ongoing crisis has forced three million people to flee their homes and seek safety in other parts of the country.


Arms Management and Destruction photo book

PHOTO BOOK: ARMS MANAGEMENT AND DESTRUCTION (MARCH 2016)

It is now widely accepted that the poor security and management of arms stockpiles has a negative impact on people and their prospects for socio-economic development.

This publication shines a spotlight on Arms Management and Destruction in Africa, where many states have amassed large stockpiles due to conflict, cross-border insecurity and the prevalence of non-state armed groups.

This publication was funded by the  German Federal Foreign Office and the US Department of State’s  Office of Weapons Removal and Abatement.
