In 2002, UNMAS and other partners undertook the development of a rapid response plan to support the immediate deployment of mine action assets to humanitarian emergencies and peacekeeping operations. Although not designed to address mine action requirements beyond the emergency phase, the plan does guide the deployment of resources and creates an environment conducive to longer-term planning.

* The plan focuses on the importance of early warning, leading to the deployment of an appropriately configured coordination capacity.
* This project supports the coordination of the implemented response through establishment of an appropriate coordination body.
* The project will finance the procurement of some equipment and provide an emergency reserve to cover the costs of two fact-finding and coordination teams so that emergency mine action requirements can be determined in two sites or situations at the same time.
* The rapid response plan also consists of options for contracting appropriate operational capabilities depending on the scenario faced.

* Standby arrangements with partners to support the deployment of the plan.
* Equipment for fact-finding teams procured.
