The joint clearing of landmines and unexploded ordnance (UXO) in Mindanao is set to be launched any time soon as part of new initiatives developed by the European Union to contribute to confidence and peace-building in the southern island of the Philippines.

According to EU Ambassador to the Philippines Guy Ledoux, a 22,000 euro contract for the Swiss Foundation for Mine Action and the Philippine Campaign to Ban Land Mines will be signed within the next few weeks.

Ledoux said the project, aimed to lower threat from UXO, is expected to benefit some 21,000 families (or some 105,000 people) spread over 21 municipalities in four provinces in Central Mindanao (13 municipalities in Maguindanao, four in Cotabato, three in Lanao del Norte, and one in Lanao del Sur).
