Strategic planning

The GICHD has been involved in strategic planning processes in a number of mine-/ERW-affected countries, including  Cambodia, DRC, Nepal, South Sudan and Tajikistan. In response to the limited guidance on the topic of strategic planning, the GICHD started the strategic planning project during the second half of 2012. The project highlights and documents key challenges, good practices and lessons learnt in strategic planning processes through country case studies, in six mine action programmes :
