The conduct of a post clearance socio-economic impact assessment in previously cleared areas will provide valuable indicators of the success of post land release developments and may serve as an effective tool in humanitarian demining tasks prioritizing for state decision-making bodies and a good reference tool for the whole mine-action community in the country. This is a long-term perspective activity which will stress an important concern of what happens to the land post-clearance and provide a view for state interlocutors how to align mine action with broader development priorities and to monitor its impact in terms of livelihoods, peace-building and broader development investments. The study will show if the mine action has a critical role to play in progressing sustainable development in a variety of fields that are so vital to and connect the clearance to local development projects.
The OSCE POiD Countering Security Threats and Regional Cooperation Unit therefore aims to conduct socio-economic impact assessment through the hiring of qualified consultant who will collect baseline socio-economic data and post clearance impact data to assess the long-term impact of mine clearance and humanitarian operations in five districts of the regions. The results will be consolidated and presented to TNMAC (Tajikistan National Mine Action Centre) who in turn will conduct discussions with local administrations (hukumats), business resource centres etc.
