Welcome to Links & Information for Mine Action | LIMA. This database launched in October 2011 replaces the smaller GICHD Links & Information database. The information contained is now broader and more informative.
In 2005, information from the database of the European Union in humanitarian Demining (EUDEM) was absorbed. In 2010, the GICHD took over the website, and the International Test and Evaluation Program for Humanitarian Demining (ITEP) data was added. To create a specific information source for the mine action community, LIMA was then designed.
