DTM for Mine Action

DTM worked with the Global Mine Action Area of Responsibility to identify information needed for analysis and response that DTM can collect through the methodologies that DTM field teams use. They also jointly developed short guidance and presentations that can help DTM and Partners in the field better work together to collect and use data for sectoral and inter-sectoral response.

Information commonly needed for Mine Action are included in the DTM Field Companion for Mine Action, formatted as a Data Analysis Plan: it includes suggested phrasing of questions and options for reply as well as descriptive analysis and possible use of data for each information need.

DTM Field Companion for Mine Action is available in excel https://dtm.iom.int/dtm-partners-toolkit/field-companion-excel and in pdf https://dtm.iom.int/dtm-partners-toolkit/field-companion-pdf . In the pdf version, one information need is detailed in each page, while in the excel version, one information need is detailed in each row. The information is identical on both versions.

DTM and Global Mine Action Area of Responsibility colleagues developed joint guidance on how to use DTM data for Mine Action. The 3-pager “Using DTM to collect data for Mine Action” and the presentation (that colleagues can use and adjust to their context) are available at https://dtm.iom.int/dtm-partners-toolkit/mine-action.
