One of the most important aspects of ITF activities is its regional approach. ITF believes that the regional co-operation is of crucial importance as different key issues may be addressed in a more efficient and cost-effective way. By bringing countries together, SEEMACC promotes the efforts to reach a mine-free status in countries well beyond the region of South East Europe.
The exchange of experience, information and know-how as well as co-ordination of activities in the field of mine action are essential in achieving the mine-free status of all affected countries. Correspondingly, these actions also contribute to the confidence building among participating countries.
