UNDP started a mine action training course for middle managers in 1999. The project was designed to enhance the management skills of middle-level managers in national mine action programmes and NGOs; management training can significantly impact a programme's productivity and effectiveness. The course was developed in 2000. Since then, it has been updated and developed to meet the needs of middle-level national mine action managers. In 2007, the project was externally evaluated. UNDP will further revise the objectives of the course in 2008 to focus on UNDP's capacity-building mandate, while embracing the full range of activities under UNDP's draft strategic plan for its Crisis Prevention and Recovery practice.
