This study comprehensively maps the sustainable development outcomes of mine action activities in South Sudan, using the SDGs as an analytical framework. It showcases the contribution of land release, victim assistance, and explosive ordnance risk education to South Sudan’s progress towards sustainable development. This study also highlights the role that gender mainstreaming efforts and the establishment of partnerships – within and beyond the mine action sector – have played in turning into reality the overarching principle of “leaving no one behind”.

The study presents evidence of the multidimensional and transformative role of mine action in South Sudan by identifying its contribution to 12 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) and to at least 50 of their targets.

The findings of this study are meant to serve as a reference to highlight and promote the value of mine action in South Sudan as an enabler of broader humanitarian, peace, and development efforts.
