The Mine Action Information Center at James Madison University has released the Landmine Casualty Data: Best Practices Guidebook, which is designed as a reference tool to assist people trying either to create a mine/ERW victim information system or enhance an existing system. Published through a grant from the Office of Weapons Removal and Abatement in the U.S. Department of State's Bureau of Political-Military Affairs, the Guidebook reports on advances being made in casualty data collection and management and offers lessons learned that countries can reflect upon as they undertake the challenging task of building mine/ERW victim information systems.
This 75-page Guidebook integrates a large volume of information emanating from a number of different sources and presents detailed case studies, recommended best practices, lessons learned, and contacts and resources for victim assistance information management and program planning.
The Guidebook is available at no cost in Adobe PDF format. A low resolution version can be downloaded below or a high resolution version on CD is available upon request.
