In FY2014 in Nepal, USPACOM deployed military EOD personnel to conduct UXO disposal training with the Nepal EOD Holding Unit. Training covered survey, marking, and mapping of UXO contaminated areas; landmine and UXO disposal; quality assurance and control; and stockpiled conventional munitions assessments. Also, USAID’s Leahy War Victims Fund continued to help improve the quality of rehabilitation treatment services through training and capacity building and maintained support to treatment and community-based rehabilitation services for persons with disabilities.
