The Public-Private Partnership Program of the Office of Weapons Removal and Abatement in the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Political-Military Affairs (PM/WRA) was launched in October 1997 to enlist civil society support for clearing persistent landmines and explosive remnants of war, teaching minerisk education, and rendering assistance to survivors of landmine- and unexploded-ordnance accidents around the world. The Public-Private Partnerships logo, created by CISR, was originally used to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Public-Private Partnership Program, which continues to this day to encourage private-sector involvement.
