In 2016, GICHD staff visited and supported 57 countries to improve mine action globally and locally.
Read stories in the annual report about how we have supported countries such as Zimbabwe to develop a national mine action strategy; Thailand to conduct a non-technical survey project; and, Ukraine to train operators on the Information Management System for Mine Action (IMSMA).
Glimpse into the 20 years of the National Mine Action Standards, and learn more about the multiple research projects in policy we published on this past year. Finally, our outreach programmes grew significantly in 2016. Read about our new awareness-raising campaign as well as news from our regional cooperation programme.
In order to conduct all this work, our staff has grown. GICHD is now made up of 65 staff members representing 19 nations.
