Gichd

By becoming a Donor or a Corporate Partner of the GICHD, you are making an important contribution to the eradication of landmines and explosive remnants of war, helping to save lives and to promote sustainable development in mine-affected countries. With your help, more land will be cleared of explosive hazards and used to revitalise livelihoods and agricultural activities. The reconstruction of infrastructure will be accelerated. But most importantly, your help will bring back safety and security to the most vulnerable communities.

We increase the efficiency of mine action operations, accelerate the return of land to productive use and help establish a safe and peaceful environment where people affected by conflict can rebuilt stable and dignified lives. Helping us allows you to engage in a truly meaningful cause.

THE DIFFERENCE WE MAKE

  • Protecting communities from explosive hazards
  • Returning contaminated land to productive use
  • Innovating for human security

Mine Action and the Sustainable Development Goals

Our work actively contributes to the broader objective of human security -- freedom from fear and freedom from want -- as well as to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set out in the UN Agenda 2030 for Sustainable Development. This undertaking is facilitated by our location within the Maison de la paix campus in Geneva, home to a dozen organisations active in the fields of development, peace and security.
