Request for Offers | Development of a generic set of NMAS chapters

International Mine Action Standards (IMAS) set the framework and good practices for National Mine Action Authorities (NMAA) worldwide to develop National Mine Action Standards (NMAS) that ensure mine action operations are safe, effective and of agreed quality. Whereas IMAS provide a framework of reference for the minimum requirements, it does not give detail on those requirements. NMAA and mine action organisations work together to breakdown those details in their specific national and operational contexts.  The GICHD aims to provide support to NMAAs in this process. Through this consultancy, the GICHD aims to create a set of guidelines on NMAS chapters to support NMAA in the development of context-specific national standards.
