In partnership with the State Emergency Services the Danish Refugee Council/Danish Demining Group (DRC/DDG) is launching a communication web portal and parallel SMS service to improve the information provision and exchange between the people living in the affected communities and the Mine Action actors. This website provides information on the threats that exist, as well as information on how to stay safe.
The project “Mine Action Applications: Linking Communities to Mine Actors through Digital Platforms” is supported by the Humanitarian Innovation Fund and UNICEF Ukraine. It is a pilot project aimed at exploring the value of digital media for promoting safe behavior related to mines/ERW in the Donbas region.
The pilot project with DRC/DDG runs until the end of April 2016. After this date, the SES Mariupol will take over the project.
