Gender and Mine Action Programme
Publication date
January 2013

These guidelines have been developed to help National Mine Action Authorities (NMAAs), non-governmental organisations (NGOs), UN agencies, national organisations, commercial companies and any other mine action organisation hiring people to conduct land release activities, including non-technical and technical survey, mapping, clearance, marking, community liaison and the handover of cleared land.

The scope of the guidelines is to provide a better understanding of the gender issues in the recruitment and training of staff at all levels and in all areas of demining organisations, as well as to present good practices and lessons learnt from the different countries studied. They aim to provide practical recommendations and examples on the incorporation of a gender dimension in recruitment and training practices.
