Japan funds a demining project in Surobi district of Kabul

Japan has agreed to provide USD 538,009 for a demining project in Surobi District of Kabul.

An agreement to that effect was signed between Japan’s Ambassador to Kabul, Hiroshi Takahashi, and Managing Diretor of Agency for Rehabilitation and Energy Conservation, Arifullah Azimi on Monday at the Embassy of Japan.

The project will be implemented in Surobi District of Kabul Province by Grant Assistance for Grassroots Projects (GAGP). Under this project, around 538,043 square meters of minefields and battlefield will be cleared.

All of the area that will be cleared is high-quality agricultural or grazing land that has been inaccessible for decades due to presence of mines and explosive remnants of war (ERWs). Once cleared, these areas will be utilized productively by the local communities and this will in turn help mitigate the poverty that still blights many families around the country.

“These projects will save many human lives, and enable the free movement of people and the use of the lands for productive activities. Mine clearance contributes to setting a basic condition for the development such as infrastructure and agriculture, which contributes to the improvement of the economic situation in Afghanistan.”, said Takahashi.

Japan has been contributing to the clearance of landmines and explosive remnants of war (ERWs) through Grant Assistance for Grassroots Projects (GAGP) in Afghanistan and has been assisting Afghanistan’s nation-building efforts in various fields including security, education, health, culture, humanitarian assistance, agriculture, infrastructure and its capacity development.
