NPA has established a permanent presence in Aden and was formally registered with the Ministry of Planning and International Cooperation (MOPIC) as a humanitarian mine action operator in November 2021. By establishing a Mine Action and Disarmament programme, and establishing and maintaining MDD capacity development project, NPA is responding to both the urgent humanitarian and protection needs present in Yemen, as well as assisting the Yemeni government’s work towards meeting their treaty obligations.
In addition, NPA is implementing an EORE (Explosive Ordnance Risk Education) and Conflict Preparedness and Protection (CPP) project in four governorates of Al Dale, Hudieda, Marib and Taiz. These governates are among the most conflict-affected governorates with high civilian casualties. NPA hopes that these interventions will bring about awareness for the population in the high-risk communities and contribute to saving lives and livelihoods.
