Norwegian People's Aid

Mission Statement

Reduce the UXO impact and contribute to the social economic development plan of Lao PDR.

Programme Description

Lao PDR suffers from the highest concentration per capita of UXO in the world. Norwegian People’s Aid (NPA), as one of the leading Humanitarian and Mine and UXO Action operators, has had a presence in Lao PDR since 1997. It was the second programme globally for NPA. The intervention has been based on both advisory and direct funding support to the national clearance agency, UXO Lao. The long term objective of the programme is to ensure that UXO no longer present an obstacle to development in Lao PDR.
