Victim Assistance (mines and explosive remnants of war)

The project’s goal is to develop practical tools supporting victim assistance implementation and support increased coordination among victim assistance & disability stakeholders. It also aims at improving synergies between disabled person’s organizations (DPOs), survivors organizations and Handicap International, who will support them in their advocacy and communication efforts.

Activities

Handicap International will also work to ensure that all action plans resulting from the ratification of the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD), the Convention on Cluster Munitions (CCM) and the Mine Ban Treaty (MBT) are linked with each other, thus informing a better comprehension and coherent implementation of victim assistance in the country. • To follow up on this action plan and the implementation of the victim assistance framework, Handicap International will support the Ministry of Labor, Social Affairs, Martyrs & Disabled (MoLSAMD); • MoLSAMD in developing monitoring tools to evaluate progress throughout the country. Handicap International will also organize training on victim assistance concepts/frameworks and implementation for focal ministries and for the Mine Action Coordination Center of Afghanistan (MACCA). The organization will also provide support aimed at affecting policy formulation in focal ministries. • Handicap International will support the Ministry in their work to mainstream disability, through developing concise notes on concrete implementation of disability inclusive development, focusing on outcomes. • Handicap International will also facilitate technical discussions with the relevant stakeholders on key identified issues (such as data collection, psycho social support, etc.) and publicizing fact sheets on victim assistance, to forge a common understanding among victim assistance implementers.
