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.
