This research program aims to implement technologically-advanced solutions for the detection and localization of landmines/UXOs. The investigated solutions are based on the advanced usage of electromagnetic waves, networks of biosensors, and/or intelligent metal detectors, and are expected to be safer, faster, and less expensive compared to the conventional demining techniques. They should help decrease the number of mines/UXOs casualties and lead to the earlier recovery of the contaminated lands.
The objectives of this project are:
To support local actors and authorities for the prevention of conflicts and the facilitation of dialogue To enhance our knowledge of the identities and difficulties that communities are facing To give a clear and objective image of the reality
The objective of this project is to shed light on this sensitive multi-pronged issue by focusing on the international legal framework of Lebanon's maritime boundaries, the environmental impact and the economic perspectives.
