Established in 1994, the Voluntary Trust Fund for Assistance in Mine Action (UN VTF) was created by UN Member States as a single entry point to fund Mine Action work. The “five pillars of mine action”, are: clearance, risk education, victim assistance, stockpile destruction and advocacy for a world free of the threat posed by landmines and explosive remnants of war.
