The seminar aimed not only to underline the activities of the key players involved in mine action, but also helped shed some light on mine contaminated areas that most residents and refugees are unaware of their existence. The event’s various panels and presentations also intended to promote the lucrative and sustainable use of the released lands. Since 2015 only, Japan has provided around USD 4 million to help local and international NGOS carry mine clearance activities in northern and southern Lebanon.
