The project will reduce the risk of mine/Explosive Remnants of War (ERW) accidents among staff working in high-threat areas, by ensuring that peacekeeping, humanitarian and development aid institutions receive mine/ERW training and materials. It will also integrate landmine/ERW safety training into standard DPKO, UNDSS, UN High Commissioner on Refugees (UNHCR) and World Food Programme (WFP) staff briefing procedures. This project is managed by UNMAS in consultation with UNDSS and UNICEF. A consultative inter-agency group of United Nations agencies monitors implementation.

* Distribute the interactive English language CD-ROM version of the safety handbook, which was finalised in 2007. This provides an opportunity for self-paced learning and extends the project reach, providing greater sustainability.
* Develop and produce Arabic, French, Portuguese, Russian and Spanish versions of the interactive instructional CD-ROM on landmine/ERW safety for staff about to work in a mine-affected country/region and make it capable of being web-hosted.
* Print and distribute French, Arabic, Dari and Pashto and Russian 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/ERW safety information and materials.
* Evaluate the project and all information materials.

* Accidents from mines/ERW prevented among staff in high-risk areas.
