The presence of explosive ordnance (EO) may have a substantial negative impact on human safety and development. Landmines, cluster munitions and other EO create barriers to achieving the eradication of poverty and reduction of inequalities and exclusion. Building on the lessons from the Korea-Vietnam Mine Action Project (KVMAP), the Korea-Vietnam Peace Village Project (KVPVP) aims to enable inclusive, safe and resilient local development by reducing the impact of EO on local communities and supporting them to improve livelihoods and health.

The project emphasizes an effective, accountable, transparent set-up in support of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) with particular relevance to SDG 16 and SDG 11, contributing to Viet Nam’s Socio-Economic Development Plan (SEDP) 2016-2020 and 2017-2020 One UN Strategic Plan. The KVPVP offers various options on how cleared land can be effectively utilized for sustainable livelihoods and resilient economic and social infrastructure in the context of increasing impacts of climate change and extreme weather events. The suggested intervention will provide best practices which can help improve the mine action sector in Vietnam overall, as well as provide models on how mine action activities can be linked closely with other sustainable development solutions.
