This project aims to strengthen the universalization and effective national implementation of the Anti-Personnel Mine Ban Convention (APMBC), also known as the Ottawa Treaty, and the Convention on Cluster Munitions (CCM). Project activities include: (1) supporting the United Nations Mine Action Service in the development of International Mine Action Standards; (2) supporting State Parties in the development of national mine action plans; (3) developing and delivering online training to ensure that gender and diversity are effectively mainstreamed in national mine action programmes; and (4) supporting the work of the Conventions’ implementation support units to organize and convene annual meetings of States Parties.

Expected results 

The expected outcomes for this project include: (1) strengthened national mine action plans in support of the Ottawa Treaty’s Landmine Free 2025 initiative; (2) better integration of gender and diversity considerations in national frameworks and plans for mine action; and (3) improved capacity for the Conventions’ present and incoming presidents to implement their respective mandates.
