The Report from the informal meeting to examine the humanitarian and developmental impact of anti-vehicle mines/mines other than anti-personnel mines (MOTAPM) has now been released. On Friday 6 November 2015, the United Nations Office for Disarmament Affairs (UNODA), the United Nations Mine Action Service (UNMAS) and the Geneva International Centre for Humanitarian Demining (GICHD) jointly hosted an informal one-day meeting in Geneva to discuss possible solutions and highlight the need for the international community to move forward and take specific action.
Upwards of 80 delegates attended the meeting, which included representatives from over 50 states, the United Nations, the International Committee of the Red Cross, non-governmental organizations and individual experts.
