NPA's international work covers three core areas: Mine Action and Disarmament, Democratisation and Just distribution of power and resources and Humanitarian Action and Crises Response.
For Department of Mine Action and Disarmament, since wars and armed conflicts come to an end; however, the remnants of war continue to terrorize millions of people for decades to follow.
