* Produce a gender balance good practice guide as a resource to assist UN staff, implementing partners, national authorities and donors to develop innovative activities to enhance women's participation in mine action programmes and decision-making.
* Disseminate the guide to mine action programmes.

* Human resource and training policies that promote gender equality in mine action programmes will be developed and implemented.
* The number of women national and international staff in mine action programmes will increase.
