Azerbaijan II (Jeyranchel Clearance Project)

The former Soviet Army military test and training range at Jeyranchel in Azerbaijan was in active use over the period 1955-1991. Unexploded ordnances (UXO) and mines remaining in the area present a serious humanitarian, socio-economic and environmental threat to the local population. The project aims at the clearance of this area.
The key reasons for this project are:

  1. Make the area safe for local farmers and the State Border Service border patrols;
  2. Open up the area for Local Authority development, principally for agriculture;
  3. Access to the nationally important archaeological and historic sites in the area;
  4. Some of the UXO and mines will become increasingly unstable and ultimately more dif cult to recover – it is necessary to clear the area of hazard;
  5. Unguarded explosives in the vicinity of the strategically important international oil and gas pipelines present a potential security threat;

Status:Third and final phase has now successfully completed.
In August 2017, all EOD teams were redeployed to other clearance activities due to a national priority. Teams returned on site in January 2018 and were augmented, allowing the project to complete on time at the end of May 2018.
The Lead Nation and donors agreed to use the approx. 60,000 EUR of contingency funds to replace some mechanical equipment for use by ANAMA on future projects.

Duration: Phase 1 launched in October 2011, implementation March 2012 - June 2014. Phase 2 launched in November 2013, implementation July 2014 - July 2016.
For Phase 3, operational clearance continued during interim period September 2016 - March 2017, until Phase 3 could be formally started in April 2017. Phase 3 was completed on time in early summer 2018.

Jordan III

Jordan III Trust Fund is a capacity building project to develop service women in Jordanian Armed Forces (JAF).
The project aims at supporting JAF to attain a 3% female officer representation and provide women with wider career opportunities.
The Trust Fund serves as a strong advocate to Mediterranean Dialogue (MD) partners and other regional actors developing servicewomen and their roles in peace and the security sector.
The JAF has developed a Military Women’s Strategy for 2006-2016 that aims to capacity-build through the recruitment and training of more women in JAF and subsequently creating wider employment and participation opportunities.
The strategy aligns with NATO/EAPC policy for implementing UNSCR 1325 on Women, Peace and Security. Progress has been stalled by the limits of the training centre.
The Jordan III Trust Fund will support JAF through three initiatives over a 36 month period:

  1. Development and implementation of a 3-Year Action Plan
  2. Enhancing Training Centre Infrastructure
  3. Enhancing Education and Training

Status: In addition to the Jordanian Armed Forces’ Assessment report, the Security Sector Gender Assessments have been issued for the Women’s Police Department, Civil Defence and Gendarmerie. A consolidated list of recommendations aligned to JONAP has been requested from JNCW by September.
The ‘Teaching Gender in the Military Handbook’ will be translated into Arabic and 200 copies printed and distributed through a launch in Amman and NATO HQ. A consultant expert Gender Advisor has been contracted, with JAF approval, to work within the Directorate of Personnel to support implementation with special emphasis on Gender training.
The competition for the construction of the training centre has been completed and contract is being awarded to the winning bidder.
After consultations and approval with the Lead Nations, this Trust Fund can now receive funds also from the Defence Capacity Building Trust Fund.

Duration: Project was launched in March 2014, started implementation in June 2015 and has been extended until December 2019.

The project is to set the conditions for a self-sustaining Jordanian ammunition demilitarisation capacity. The following three initiatives will be implemented over 24 months period:

  1. Demilitarisation Centre. Through the development of procedures and accreditation, the project will support HQ Ammunition Command to provide the frameworks and tools to sustainably manage and conduct demilitarisation. This will include environmental management and resource planning.
  2. Propellant Surveillance. The project will provide additional test equipment capacity for analysing legacy ammunition systems and will support accreditation as an international laboratory. Support will also be given for Jordan’s involvement in NATO Ammunition Safety Group activities.
  3. Destruction and Recycling.The project will support destruction of 240 gross tonnes of ammunition identified as unsuitable for service and as a priority through testing. The process will also trial recycling and recovery to maximise returned revenue to resource this and future demilitarisation activities.

Status: To support periodic maintenance of the incinerator used for demilitarisation activities, spare parts have been delivered and maintenance activities are completed. A Statement of Work for the demilitarisation element of the project has been drafted and planned alongside ISO management process improvements.
ISO training for quality and environment commenced in April 2018 and continues into July 2018. Data Loggers and software for stockpile temperature recording have been delivered. Accreditation of surveillance included in larger JAF laboratory accreditation programme for 2018-2019. Requirements for new test equipment are being drafted.

Duration: The project was launched in September 2016 and started implementation in January 2018 with the expected duration of two years.

Mauritania II, Phase 1+

The Mauritania II project will contribute to the security and safety of the civilian population while enhancing the operational efficiency of the Mauritanian National Army (MNA) followed by a request for assistance from Mauritania in March 2014 in continuation of the first Trust Fund. The project will also contribute to strengthening the relationship between NATO and Mauritania and to changing the civilian population’s perception of NATO.
Supporting three initiatives:

  • Physical Security and Stockpile Management (PSSM),
  • Destruction, Demilitarisation and Disposal (D3) and
  • Defence Reform (DR),
The Trust Fund project is divided in 3 phases in accordance with fund raising, each of them implementing the described initiatives.

Status: The initiatives on disposal of military ordnance and gender training have been completed in 2017.
The construction of an Ammunition Storage Area in Néma and in F’Dérik has started in February 2018. The construction in Néma is expected to be completed in July 2018 and the construction in F’Dérik is expected to be completed in October 2018.
The Mauritanian National Army has sent NSPA the curriculum of the training courses for the ammunition storekeeper and the ammunition depot manager. One training course was organised in the ammunition training school of Akjoukt, the second training course taking place in July.

Duration: Project was launched in May 2015 and started implementation in February 2016. Phases 1 and 2 were merged to Phase 1+, which is expected to be completed by the end of 2018. An extension of budget and duration for Phase 1+ has been approved.
