A Guide to Mine Action

O
ver the past decade, mine action has developed rapidly as a humanitarian
and development discipline. For the newcomer to the subject, however,
the disparate nature of the sources sometimes makes it difficult to
understand the complexities and inter-relationships of the different mine action
components and activities. Moreover, specialists in one area of the discipline
may not be aware of developments in another.
A Guide to Mine Action has been prepared by the Geneva International Centre
for Humanitarian Demining as a basic grounding to the diplomat, donor, lawyer,
practitioner or scholar in the key aspects of mine action. It is intended to reflect
current realities in a fast-developing humanitarian concern. Although focused
on efforts to alleviate the problems caused by landmines and unexploded
ordnance, many of the techniques and approaches that have been developed
within mine action also have broader relevance to relief and development efforts.
A Guide to Mine Action is available in hard copy in English, French and Spanish,
and these versions can also be accessed on-line at: www.gichd.ch. The project was
funded by the Swiss government whose support is gratefully acknowledged.
