Provision of Mine Risk Education.

Tenders are invited for Provision of Mine Risk Education.

UNOPS invites qualified firms to submit Technical and Financial Proposals to provide services associated with the UNOPS requirement for the Provision of Mine Risk Education in East of the Berm Western Sahara, and in Tindouf_Rabbouni, Algeria. A description of the required services is described in section 4, Statement of Work, of this RFP

Over twenty years of conflict have left Western Sahara affected by both landmines and other explosive remnants of war (ERW). This contamination seriously affects the livelihoods of Saharawi nomads living and traveling throughout Western Sahara. While no complete landmine/ERW survey has yet been conducted in the entire expanse of territory, both parties to the conflict in Western Sahara -- the Moroccan Government

and the Frente Polisario -- have provided MINURSO with information regarding suspected hazardous areas in the territory. Information to-date indicates that the areas around the earthen berm running from northeast to southwest (constructed by the Royal Moroccan Army during the conflict) are the most seriously affected.


The MINURSO MACC has identified Four principle objectives for the programme in Western Sahara, in keeping with the UN Inter-Agency Mine Action Strategy 2013-2018: 1) Protection of UN personnel, refugee, returnee and local populations from the threat of mines and ERW 2) Strengthen and expand existing local capacities to coordinate physical, psycho-social and economic rehabilitation and reintegration of mine/ERW survivors 3) UN personnel, humanitarian actors along with local and refugee populations can access land that was previously contaminated and/or perceived to be contaminated 4) Local capacity is improved to address mine/ERW threats on both sides of the berm.
