Mine clearing funds

Clearing for Results, a new Cambodian demining program, received its first

financial contribution on January 25 from AusAID, the official aid agency of the

Australian Government. In a ceremony at the Council of Ministers, the

Australians confirmed that $1.5 million would be given to the project in

2006-7.

Though the project is mine clearance, it will also introduce

monitoring systems to facilitate much needed agricultural development: "Safe

access to productive land brings new economic opportunities," said Lisa

Filipetto, the Australian Ambassador.
