Advisory Group

The Explosive Ordnance Risk Education Advisory Group (EORE AG) was launched in 2019. It provides overall guidance to the sector and identifies ways to improve the integration, effectiveness, efficiency and relevance of EORE.

The EORE AG draws on the expertise of over a dozen UN agencies, international organisations, international NGOs and national mine action authorities who serve as members or observers to the group. It is co-chaired by UNICEF and a rotating NGO – currently Humanity & Inclusion (HI) – and the GICHD serves as secretariat. National authorities responsible for mine action and EORE will be the privileged interlocutors and decision makers for plans to be carried out in their respective countries.

For questions or requests to the EORE AG, please contact Faustine Auger (f.auger(at)gichd.org).

Digital EORE Project Mapping

The Digital Task Team of the EORE Advisory Group has worked to map digital EORE projects across the HMA sector over the past five years. The database serves as a reference guide for digital EORE projects around the globe by providing a snapshot of key information as well as contact details to enable practitioners to contact organisations about specific projects to learn more.
