On the 7th of June, ARMAC held its inaugural strategy stakeholder meeting in Phnom Penh, Cambodia. The workshop drew representatives from over 15 government and non-government organizations to provide input into the preparation of ARMAC’s first five-year strategic plan.
The meeting is the first of a series of workshops that will encompass stakeholders across mine-affected ASEAN Member States (AMSs). The next workshop will be held in Thailand at the end of the month followed by Viet Nam in early July. The goal of ARMAC is to reduce the impact of landmines and explosive remnants of war throughout the region through enhanced awareness in communities, victim assistance, and the sharing of knowledge amongst AMSs.
