This study comprehensively maps the sustainable development outcomes of mine action activities in Somalia, 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 and diversity 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, agriculture and the productive use of land, environmental sustainability, sustainable economic growth, infrastructure, and water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH), among other outcomes.

The study presents evidence of the multidimensional and transformative role of mine action by identifying its direct contribution to 15 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and to at least 47 of their targets in Somalia, in support of humanitarian, developmental and sustaining peace efforts.
