True to its commitment to achieve sustainable development, notably by furthering the UN Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) through facilitated, safe and secure road transport, the IRU teamed up with UNMAS to support demining activities in Afghanistan in the framework of the UN Decade of Action for Road Safety 2011-2020. The brochure presents this innovative public-private partnership, whose aim was to improve road security in war-torn Afghanistan by clearing roads and road adjacent minefields and battle areas posing a significant threat to the thousands of people who travel along and work around the routes linking Kabul to its Central Asian neighbours every week, thus contributing to the reconstruction, development and stabilisation of Afghanistan and helping the country move from aid to trade by international road transport.
