The decision was made during a meeting of the Coordination Roundtable on Assistance to Victims of Explosive Ordnance. It was organized by the Danish Refugee Council (DRC) and the United Nations Development Program (UNDP).

The representative of the Ministry of Reintegration presented an Interactive map of incidents involving explosive devices and victims.

It was developed by the Ministry of Reintegration in cooperation with the Geneva International Center for Humanitarian Demining (GICHD) and the Mine Action Center of the State Special Transport Service (SSTS).

The introduction of such a map allowed for the first time to start collecting information on victims of mines and unexploded ordnance. It also allowed to start assessing their needs, systematize and store such data in the Mine Action Information Management System.

The initiative of the Ministry of Reintegration was highly appreciated by international and national non-governmental organizations. It makes it possible to obtain verified data on mine victims in order to provide them with qualified assistance.
