04.04.2016 | In 2015 Switzerland actively engaged in humanitarian mine action as a concrete contribution to peace and security. It supported specific projects in Afghanistan, Cambodia, Colombia, Gaza, Mali and Myanmar, among others, and seconded an average of ten specialists to UN mine action programmes. This engagement bolsters humanitarian aid, development cooperation and peacebuilding, as it has in Colombia, where one of the longest civil wars has come to an end. The latest annual report provides an overview of the activities carried out by the Confederation in 2015.
