This study comprehensively maps the sustainable development outcomes of mine action activities in Jordan, using the SDGs as an analytical framework. It presents concrete examples which illustrate the impact of mine action interventions (land release, victim assistance, explosive ordnance risk education) and approaches (gender mainstreaming, partnerships and cooperation) towards sustainable development and the overarching principle of ‘leaving no one behind’. The publication sheds light on mine action’s enabling role for facilitating safe mobility, access to natural resources, agriculture activities, sustainable economic growth, biodiversity, infrastructure, and housing, among other outcomes.

The study presents evidence of the multidimensional and transformative role of mine action by identifying its direct contribution to 16 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and to at least 63 of their targets in Jordan, in support of humanitarian, developmental and sustaining peace efforts.
