Effective communication is essential for reaching out to various segments within the mine action community. Linguistic programmes have been initiated in Arabic, French, Persian and Russian in partnership with the affected states and regional organisations to improve knowledge, exchange experiences, boost regional cooperation and promote best mine action practices.

These programmes will progress the mandate of the GICHD as a leading expert centre by allowing it to be a multilingual knowledge hub and a source of information for the whole mine action community. They will also serve national authorities and their staff members to build capacities in relevant areas by having access to material, training and advisory services in their own languages.
