The joint GICHD-UNDP study explores the links between mine action and the 2030 Agenda and its SDGs. It seeks to reflect the current understanding of the contribution and impact that mine action is having on achieving the 2030 Agenda in countries affected by landmines, cluster munitions and other explosive remnants of war.
The study also aims to provide guidance to policy and decision makers from mine action organisations, donors and particularly National Mine Action Authorities on how to:
The past year was particularly productive for the GICHD: we helped achieve more clarity on the global extent of explosive contamination and strengthened national capacities. We had a positive impact on national mine action programmes and supported wider security and development issues. Finally, with the invaluable support of our governance and partners, we developed our new 2015-2018 Strategy.
We are proud of the work we accomplished and we hope you enjoy reading about it.

GICHD POLICY BRIEF | DECEMBER 2010
Land and property are often central issues in the build up to conflict, in the strategies pursued by combatants and in post-conflict recovery
Mine action organisations are not neutral when it comes to land rights. Releasing land which was previously contaminated with landmines and explosive remnants of war (ERW) and making it accessible changes its status. This inevitably involves land rights issues, even if the intent is to avoid them.
1. During the first three months of the year 2005, the GICHD continued and consolidated its activities in the fields of operational assistance, research and support to instruments of international law. It also started its training initiative in mine action information management (see para. 4 and 11 below).
2. The first core activity of the GICHD is the provision of specific operational support and assistance to on-going mine action activities and programmes, including those run by the UN.
