The project will engage French- and Portugese-speaking UN mine action programme managers and technical advisors, national authorities and non-governmental organizations in the planning of concrete initiatives to advance gender equality in specific mine action programmes.

* Organize a gender equality in mine action workshop to discuss the key concepts of gender balance and gender mainstreaming, and how to operationalize these concepts in the planning and implementation of mine action programmes.
* With the guidance of gender experts, ask workshop participants to develop action plans to integrate gender equality perspectives into their programme planning and implementation.

* Workshop participants will take into account the impact of mines and explosive remnants of war on women, men, boys and girls in the design of initiatives and plans, and seek to ensure that men, women, boys and girls benefit equitably from mine action activities and, as appropriate, employment opportunities provided by mine action programmes.
* UN managed and supported mine action programmes in French- and Portuegese-speaking countries will adopt and implement action plans that contain strategic activities and indicators of achievement to ensure operationalization.
