South Sudan’s national mine action strategy presents the strategic direction for its mine action programme for the period 2024 – 2028. Its purpose is to provide accountability, clarity, and a shared sense of strategic orientation among all stakeholders. The strategy builds on achievements made during previous strategic periods, aligns with South Sudan’s Revised National Development Strategy, and compliments the revised Anti-Personnel Mine Ban Convention (APMBC) Article 5 Extension Request.1 Reflecting international good practice and in line with the APMBC Oslo Action Plan (OAP)2,3 and the Convention on Cluster Munition (CCM) Lausanne Action Plan (LAP)4, the strategy was developed based on updated information through a collaborative, inclusive process with a wide range of stakeholders, including the National Mine Action Authority (NMAA), South Sudan government ministries, the Geneva International Centre for Humanitarian Demining (GICHD), the United Nations Mine Action Service (UNMAS), the APMBC Implementation Support Unit and national and international operators. Following an official request from the NMAA and with support from UNMAS, the GICHD facilitated and supported the process of developing this strategy, drawing on funding from the German Federal Foreign Office.
