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.
FOREWORD BY THE DIRECTOR
In 2012, the GICHD’s work was guided by the new Strategy 2012-2014 and its two key objectives, which are to accelerate progress towards global clarity on the extent of contamination and to enhance the capacities of national authorities in mine-affected countries.
This report gives an overview of the capacity development/transition process of the Sudan mine action programme (MAP), from its establishment in 2003 till 2011.
The international community has discussed the impact of mines other than antipersonnel mines (MOTAPM) for several years. The First Review Conference of the Convention on Certain Conventional Weapons (CCW) in 1996 resulted in the adoption of Amended Protocol II, which is less restrictive with regard to the use of MOTAPM than with regard to the use of anti-personnel mines (APMs). Since then, efforts have continued in exploring the need and options for further legal regulation.
