*Advance gender equality in UN-managed and supported mine action programmes to the fullest extent possible.
*Enhance impact assessment tools available to field programmes to ensure that initiatives integrate gender considerations and serve the needs of all members of affected communities.
*Support the forum in which field staff can review progress made in integrating gender perspectives in their programming, enhance their skills in this area, and develop country-specific gender action plans.

*Conduct a desk review of existing assessment tools used by implementing partners, national authorities, and donors to measure the impact of mine action on beneficiary communities, to ensure that they are gender-sensitive.
*Based on the findings, undertake revisions and develop gender sensitive model tools and adoption guidelines for use in field activities.
*Develop a network of mine action operations and gender experts to ensure that the proposed impact assessment model tools are both practical and gender-sensitive.
*Convene a second regional Gender Equality and Mine Action Workshop in late 2007 where select mine action programmes can design gender-sensitive action plans, progress indicators, and monitoring mechanisms.

*Model tools and adaptation guidelines for assessment of mine action initiatives are disseminated to operational mine action colleagues in the field for use.
*Skills of field staff in mine action programmes to assess the gender impact and sensitivity of their programmes are strengthened.
*Progress in the integration of gender equality in select field programmes is evaluated and gender-sensitive action plans are developed during the second regional Gender Equality and Mine Action Workshop.
