The project will reduce the risk of accidents from mines and explosive remnants of war (ERW) among staff working in high-threat areas by ensuring that peacekeeping, humanitarian and development aid institutions receive mine and ERW training and materials. It will also assist with the integration of landmine and ERW safety training into standard DPKO, UNDSS and other UN agency staff briefing procedures. This project is managed by UNMAS in consultation with UNDSS and UNICEF. A consultative inter-agency group of UN agencies monitors implementation.

* Engage a specialist consultant to undertake a review of existing products and develop a two-year strategy for project development.
* Continue production of the English language version of the interactive instructional CD-ROM of the landmine and ERW safety handbook for staff about to work in a mine-affected country or region, which was finalized in 2007. This provides an opportunity for self-paced learning and extends the project's reach, ensuring greater sustainability.
* Develop and produce Arabic, French, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish versions of the CD-ROM; undertake product development so that the tool can be web-hosted.
* Print and distribute French, Arabic, Russian, Dari and Pashto versions of the safety handbook.
* Provide necessary support to mine safety implementers to provide humanitarian, development, aid, governmental and NGO workers with country-specific mine and ERW safety information and materials.
* Evaluate the project and all information materials.

* Accidents from mines and ERW among staff in high-risk areas will be prevented.
* Mine risk education will be mainstreamed within UN standard staff training.
