Addressing the Legacy of War in Central Vietnam

PeaceTrees Vietnam - headquartered in Seattle, Washington, and Quảng Trị Province, Vietnam - is dedicated to addressing the legacy of the U.S-Vietnam War through mine action, community assistance, and citizen diplomacy. In partnership with Vietnamese leadership and local communities, PeaceTrees safely clears land of explosive remnants of war and supports community-led education and economic development initiatives so that future generations can thrive. Your support cultivates prosperous and sustainable futures for communities that continue to be impacted by war.

PeaceTrees Project Manger, Carlie Stowe, explains how mine action supports humanitarian, development, and peace-building programs, and why it is a needed precursor to achieving the UN's 2030 Sustainable Development Goals.

PeaceTrees Vietnam is featured in this publication from The Center for International Stabilization and Recovery along with updates on conventional weapons destruction projects around the world.

PeaceTrees Vietnam collaborated with the Conflict and Environment Observatory to publish this article looking at the impacts of climate change and extreme weather on mine action operations.
