Developing states were struggling to understand and achieve the International Ammunition Technical Guidelines. Uncontrolled explosives continued to pose a major hazard to those who had to live and work in close proximity to them.


We were asked to conduct research into a simplified approach to ammunition safety management and develop a system that would provide cost effective ways to reduce the risk to vulnerable communities.


We developed a low cost, systematic approach aimed at local grass routes development. We re-focused efforts on the use of local resources and knowledge to find, make safe and safely manage explosive remnants of war and ammunition stockpiles.
