Swiss Foundation for Mine Action



Preparations for demolitions

The Swiss Foundation for Mine Action (FSD) is an international mine action organization based in Geneva, Switzerland.



This private, independent, and non-profit organization was created in 1997 and since then, it has implemented a number of mine clearance projects in more than 15 different countries.



FSD's focus is on locating and destroying landmines and unexploded ordnance in order to prevent accidents. FSD's overarching aim is to alleviate and diminish the social, economic and environmental impacts of landmines and unexploded ordnance, thus creating favourable conditions for the reconstruction and development of war-torn countries.
