Transitioning Mine Action Programmes to National Ownership Workshop
Following the launch of the A Guide on Transitioning Mine Action Programmes to National Ownership, the GICHD is organising a workshop. It will take place at the GICHD’s offices in Geneva from 22 – 24 May 2013.
The main goal of the workshop is to promote strengthened national ownership of mine action programmes. The methodology will be hands-on-work to learn how to adapt approaches and tools to situations that mine action programmes face. The organisers will encourage collaboration among states, donors and the UN, with an understanding that successful transition to national ownership is not necessarily an exit plan for the donors and the UN, but a relationship that emphasises national control and ownership.
The workshop will attract representatives from a wide range of national mine action programmes, international non-governmental organisations, UNMAS and UNDP.
As a knowledge hub for mine action, the GICHD fosters extended communications. Information sharing incorporates all relevant tools, in particular publications and their translations, as well as the GICHD website.
Examples of recent publications include:
