"UNDP will continue to work together with Azerbaijan in the field of demining in the coming years."

According to Azernews, Alessandra Roccasalvo, the Resident Representative of the United Nations Development Programme in Azerbaijan, said at the II International Conference on "Combating the Mine Threat: Innovations and Best Practices" organized by the Azerbaijan National Agency for Mine Action (ANAMA).

"As women are also at risk from landmines, they are able to make a significant contribution to mine clearance. We are actively developing the potential of every Azerbaijani citizen to tackle this problem. With the support of the European Union, we have established six demining teams. Today we are certifying two of them, which are women. That is significant for many countries and for us, and we endeavor to share that experience with the world. Our efforts in mine clearance in Garabagh must be an example of dedication, financial resources, expertise, and global partnership. This is a task that cannot be accomplished by a country alone," she noted.

Roccasalvo also emphasized that it is necessary to develop partnerships to spread Azerbaijan's positive experience in the field of demining around the world.

It should be noted that more than 100 representatives of international organizations, operating and production companies engaged in mine clearance activities from 25 countries, government officials, as well as representatives of state structures and diplomatic corps accredited in Azerbaijan are taking part in the II International Technical Conference organized by Azerbaijan.
