In the mine action sector, as in so many others, efficiency is a central concern in operations. Efficiency in mine action is defined as a measure of how economically resources/inputs (funds, expertise, time, etc.) are converted to results (outputs and outcomes). The aim is to deploy survey and clearance resources and to use financial resources in such a way that they produce the greatest output.

The Study on Operational Efficiency in Mine Action aims to provide a framework for mine action stakeholders to review the efficiency of their own land release operations, identify potential improvements, make evidence-based decisions and identify areas for improvement in a complex and dynamic context.
