The GICHD supports national authorities, international and regional organisations and NGOs in over 70 countries in their efforts to improve the relevance and performance of mine action.


Mine action is well placed to contribute significantly to three dimensions of the Agenda for Humanity: Act as local as possible, as international as necessary; Provide comprehensive responses across sectors, using innovation; Reduce harm from explosive weapons in populated areas.
