The Swiss Campaign to Ban Landmines is delighted to announce the launch of an advocacy kit on gender and mine action.

This kit has been developed as a tool to empower local women's grass roots organisations wishing to advocate for gender mainstreaming in mine action in seven (7) countries: Colombia, Croatia, Lebanon, Mozambique, Sri Lanka, Sudan and Yemen.

Existing research indicates that local women's grass roots organisations hold vital information about women, girls, boys and men in mine affected communities.
