How much national funding was provided for mine action in 2014 and which countries provided funding?
While there has been more transparency from affected states, overall national contributions to mine action continue to be under-reported. Few States Parties report national funding in their annual Article 7 reports. States Parties such as Algeria and Iraq, as well as states not party India, Sri Lanka, and Vietnam—all mine-affected states with significant contamination and major clearance operations, usually conducted by the army—have never reported annual expenditures.
Fourteen affected states reported $131.2 million in contributions to mine action from their national budget in 2015, some $62 million less than the $193.6 million reported in 2014 (a 32% decrease). This decrease is largely the result of less support provided by Angola to its mine action program, with a total contribution amounting to $60 million in 2015 (half as much as in 2014, when it provided more than $120 million). Nevertheless, Angola still accounted for 43% of all national funding for 2015. Additionally, four States Parties reported contributing a large part of their own mine action programs: Bosnia and Herzegovina ($13.2 million, 58% of total program cost), Chile ($4.4 million, 100%), Croatia ($30.8 million, 56%), and Peru ($1.4 million, 88%); as did state not party Lebanon ($9.0 million, 52%).
